The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has said that it is not true that the immediate past Governor, Alhaji Abdulazeez Yari has dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This was contained in a statement signed by the factional State Publicity Secretary APC Zamfara,
Ibrahim Birnin Magaji, made available to our correspondent on Saturday November 27, 2021.
“A big lie of the century fabricated by those who are politically scared of his prowess and afraid of their political future beyond 2023.
“He won’t leave a House that he was not only one of its founder but a strong, critical Stakeholder for its survival now and beyond 2023,” it said.
The statement admitted that Yari was indeed sighted in company of PDP chieftains, but clarified that it was at a public function.
“Yes, they were in Kaduna together for the Wedding Fatiha of Malam Yusuf Bala Lau’s Daughter(National Chairman of Izala Movement in Nigeria) and that’s to tell you how he is not only politically connected across the divide but to show you how he was able to build bridges and goodwill in all parts of country,” it added.
The statement explained that Yari is currently, strategically warming up for a big task in the APC because he is in the race to become its National Chairman.
“So those who cannot cope with the pace have resorted to this cheep blackmail, mischief and self – deceit,” it concluded .
