Immediate past governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari has said that then ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) remains strong and intact in the state in spite of losing the political leadership of the state.
Yari stated this on Saturday in his address to a crowd of APC members from the 14 local government areas of the state who visited his residence in Talata-Mafara for stakeholders’ meeting of the party.
The former governor, therefore, urged party supporters in the state to remain calm and continue to be law-abiding.
”We are highly impressed with what we have witnessed today; this indicates that the APC remains strong and intact in the state.
”I thank you for your resilience in supporting the party in spite of the challenges. I am giving you the assurance that we will continue to provide good leadership to ensure peace and unity in our great party,” he said.
Speaking earlier, the state’s APC Chairman, Lawal Liman, who thanked Yari for his efforts in promoting the party in the state said that the meeting was organised by the state chapter of the party to show solidarity to the former governor as the APC leader in the state.
He also expressed appreciation to the party supporters for their continued support to the party in the state.
Dignitaries in attendance include the state executive members, 14 local government chairmen, former National Assembly members and state lawmakers, among others.
