A group, Concerned Citizens of Like Minds, has rallied support for the former Governor of Zamfara State, Dr Abdul’Aziz Abubakar Yari for the position of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman.
It would be recalled that the All Progressives Congress (APC) announced that its national convention will take place in February 2022.
Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, PGF, and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu, disclosed this to State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking on their stance for Yari, Group Chairman Auwal Dalhatu said the erstwhile Governor of Zamfara State is the best option for the job looking at his track record of achievements in leadership positions
Awwal maintained that Yari’s tenure as governor saw the state grow economically and infrastructurally.
The group recalled that Yari’s colleagues had labelled him the best chairman that ever sat on the seat of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum especially considering his capacity as a bridge-builder.
“The reason why we think the former Governor, His Excellency Abdul’Aziz Abubakar Yari is the best fit can be attributed to his previous achievements.
“If you look at Zamfara State, Abdul’Aziz has achieved economic boost despite environmental conditions of the state.
“He was able to execute projects that have necessitated infrastructural development in Zamfara State.
“Talking about him as the Chairman, Nigeria Governor’s Forum, His colleagues came together and labelled him as the best chairman that ever sat on the seat.
“So, we are more concerned about the giant strides he played in building the bridge between the southern, northern and eastern governors while serving in that capacity.” He stated.
The Chairman told the delegates that the time to extol Nigeria is now and this can be achieved when the mantle of leadership is handed over to Yari.
Meanwhile, he said the group would work with the APC to improve the social and economic dignity of citizens.
