The All Progressives Congress, APC, Zamfara State Chapter, Monday, expelled the immediate past governor of the State, Abdulaziz Yari. The party blamed the former governor for the deep trouble it found itself during the past elections.
“ Yari and his boys scuttled the efforts of our national headquarters to conduct primaries on the 3rd and 7th of October 2018. His nefarious activities led to the death of six persons and over 200 others were injured,” the party said.
The party also ordered the embattled former governor to surrender all properties of the party in his possession.
“ Following this development, we are urging them to immediately surrender all the belongings of the party in their possession including funds.
The party recalled how the former governor frustrated its efforts to conduct primaries last year, thus laying the foundation for the electoral misfortune that befell it in the state. “ After reviewing the outing of our party in the last general election and the outcome of the Supreme Court Judgement, we hereby dismiss the former governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari and the Deputy National Chairman Sen Lawali Shuaibu from the APC.
The decision to expel the former governor and the Deputy National Chairman was taken at the end of an emergency meeting held in Gusau, the Zamfara state capital.
