Gov. Yari of Zamfara says he has forgiven the All Progressives Congress (APC) over the unfair treatment it meted out to the state chapter of the party.
He said that the party was not fair to the Zamfara state chapter over the controversy that surrounded the state governorship primary election.
The Zamfara State High Court 3 sitting in Gusau on Friday upheld the primary election conducted by the state chapter of APC.
The state APC chapter had on Oct. 11, 2018, filed a case before the court praying it to compel the APC national headquarters and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to accept the primary election it conducted on Oct. 7, 2018.
The national headquarters of the APC had earlier declared that there was no primary election of the party in the state.
His words, “Some other people are saying that the reign of Yerima and Abdulaziz for 20 years is over in Zamfara State but I believe Almighty God to give power to whomsoever he desires to give and he promised to sustain the power as long you uphold justice.
I use this opportunity to call on the party;the crisisdidnt die at the party level. I can say the party has not done justice to us, but we have forgiven it;in a democracy, there is a process.
Section 87, 1 to 14 of the Electoral Act is very clear on what should be done; so, in our case, we were denied many things but as I said earlier, we have forgiven and we are going to continue.
You remember, from October, 2018, we have been struggling on whether there is primary or no primary in Zamfara State by INEC and we believe we have undergone all the processes.
Today, God did it once again for us by giving us victorythe court accepted that Zamfara State APC has conducted its primaries based on the evidence presented before that court.”
