The antecedents of ex-Governor Yari of Zamfara state has become his undoing in wherethe northern state of Zamfara where he governed for 8 years, a period that has been adjudged as about the worst period in the state due to acts of terrorism, bandritary and loss of lives in communities that rendered many widows and orphans.
Raising these issues to press men, one of the prominent Areas Youth member Comrade Bello M. Magaji said that Yari’s old penchant for calling up violence in political arenas has thus made him suspect at political forums where credibility is needed.
Comrade Bello M. Magaji stated that, “it could be recalled that former Governor of Zamfara state Gov Abdul Aziz yari repeatedly stated that their party will not ever allow free fair and credible election in Zamfara state when he was Governor. He anchored his confidence on what he and his supporters called ‘federal might.’
Magaji noted that, Yari on one of such times, made it clear that their formidable party will intimidate all other opposition parties like PDP, APGA, NRM, and other major party’s candidates during the election to have their way: Atrocities and harm against human being, land properties destroyed by the armed bandits during his tenure.”
Comrade Bello M. Magaji called on people in Zamfara state and well meaning Nigerians to be wary of the ex governor as he is capable of political violence at any time and does not believe in democratic ideals.
