Anti-party allegation: Yari rejects APC’s committee report
Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, the immediate past Governor of Zamfara State , has described a report submitted by a five-man committee of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), alleging anti-party activities against him as baseless, contemptuous and embarrassing.
Yari, through his Media Aide, Ibrahim Dosara, on Wednesday said the committee’s claims and the subsequent publications in the media had “no basis, it contradicted court judgement and order”.
The ex-governor said the committee’s report and the publication “caused serious embarrassment and damage” to his personality.
The APC five-man Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday in Abuja received a report of alleged anti party activities against its Deputy National Chairman (North), Lawal Shuaibu, and Yari.
The report was over their alleged role in the 2019 electoral misfortune of the party in the state.
NAN reported that a Federal High Court had dismissed a suit by the Marafa faction of the party and affirmed the Abdulaziz Yari faction as legally constituted and ordered that, henceforth, the Marafa faction should stop parading itself as the legitimate Executive Committee of the party in Zamfara.
The Yari faction has Lawal Liman as the state chairman.
