Former Zamfara State Governor, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari says he has no plans to defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to any other political party.
The former Governor’s Chief of Staff, Abdullahi Abdulkarim-Tsafe in a statement in Gusau on Monday, said that the Social media posts on the former governor’s purported plan to defect to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is a hoax.
“To our concerned party members, friends, associates and the general public, our attention has been drawn to the false news being circulated over social media and some print media by some unscrupulous and under-baked attention seeking moronic elements.
“For the records, there has never been a time that the former Governor of Zamfara, Abdul’aziz Yari ever had anything to do with the PDP.
“He has always been, right from his early days in politics, with the All People Party (APP), All Nigerian People’s Party (ANPP), All Progressive Congress (APC) and has never had interest in being a member of the PDP,” the statement said.
“It has become imperative that we address all these disjointed and sickening rumors for the umpteenth time.
“Note that as a seasoned politician, Abdul’aziz Yari would never engage in any anti/multi party activities neither would he break the party oath just to score some cheap points,” he explained.
He urged party faithful to regard the rumors as the handiworks of mischief makers who are bent on tarnishing his image.
