The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled the immediate past governor of Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari, for allegedly scuttling the party’s chances in Zamfara.
In a joint statement signed by Alhaji Sirajo Garba Maikatako, the chairman of the APC in Zamfara state, and Muhammad Bello Bakyasuwa, the party’s publicity secretary, the political organisation said it also expelled the deputy national chairman (north), Lawali Shuaibu. Shuaibu, the party said, was expelled for conniving with Yari to sabotage the National Working Committee (NWC) during the botched primary elections of the state.
In a statement, the party said the decision to expel the former governor and the deputy national chairman was taken at the end of an emergency meeting held in Gusau, the Zamfara state capital.
Also expelled, according to a statement from the party, is the legislator representing Kauran Namoda/Birnin Magaji constituency at the House of Representatives, Aminu Jaji.
