Yari tackles Marafa over alleged plans to unseat Oshiomhole

A former governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, has described as laughable, allegations by Senator Kabir Marafa that he was planning to unseat Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress.

Yari, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mayowa Oluwabiyi, said it was not true that the Nigerian Governors Forum, which he led until May 2019, was planning to install him as its candidate for the APC top job.

He, therefore, cautioned Marafa and others not to set him against the President, Muhammadu Buhari.

Yari’s statement was his reaction to last Friday’s comments by Marafa, where he alleged at a news conference that the former governor had a grudge against Buhari.

The former Zamfara Senatorial District representative also alleged that the NGF was planning to adopt Yari as its candidate for the APC national chairmanship position.

But Yari noted that there should be a limit to how far statesmen should go in trying to curry favour with the authorities.
