- Abdulaziz Yari, Zamfara's former governor, has said that he is willing to run for the national chairmanship of the APC
- Yari revealed that he knows all about how national chairmen are picked across political parties
- The former governor said that he will gladly serve as the APC chairman if give the chance to do so
The immediate past governor of Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari, has indicated his interest to emerge as the next national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The former Zamfara governor said that if given the opportunity to lead the ruling party, he will whole-heartedly accept it.
Yari revealed that his bid to control the affairs of the APC is fuelled by his deep knowledge of how national leaders across political parties in the country are chosen.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja after his meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the former governor said: “I have said it several times that I know from the grassroots how the chairman is picked. Either in the PDP, ANPP, CPC, I know how the chairman is picked."
Yari disclosed that what is obtainable is that political parties "sit down and critically look at which zone will produce the chairman, which zone will produce the secretary, which zone will produce the deputy."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the crisis rocking the Zamfara chapter of the APC might soon be over if the political gladiators sheathe their swords and embrace peace.
Yari said he was open to reconciliation with the aggrieved members of the party in the state.
The APC lost all the elective positions in the state to the PDP after the Supreme Court declared all the primary elections done by Yari's faction illegal.
Speaking on Tuesday, September 8, at the national secretariat of the APC shortly after meeting with the caretaker/extraordinary national convention planning committee led by Governor Mai Mala Buni, Yari said he was ready to reconcile with aggrieved members led by Senator Kabir Marafa.
Earlier, Zamfara state governor, Bello Matawalle, said his administration would introduce a death sentence for reckless driving.
The governor made the statement on Saturday, August 29 when reacting to a fatal accident that claimed the lives of 15 supporters of the PDP.
