JUST IN: Ex-Zamfara Gov, Yari Withdraws Court Cases Against APC
The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Zamfara State may be ending soon as former Governor of the state, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari has ordered the immediate withdrawal of four cases he filed against the leadership of the party.
Before now, there was a serious rift between the camps of the state Governor, Bello Matawalle; his predecessor, Yari; and Senator Kabiru Marafa.
Party stakeholders have tried to settle the rift but to no avail. The defunct caretaker committee of the party under the leadership of the Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, also tried to resolve the issues but all fell to nought.
However, recently, the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, stepped in and reconciled the camps. The development, Ezenwoko’s Blog understands opened a new chapter for the APC in the state.
The PUNCH reports that Yari’s withdrawal of the suits was made by Marafa at the end of a consultative meeting of stakeholders held at Garba Nadama Hall in Gusau on Wednesday.
Three of the suits were instituted to challenge the party congresses in the state and the members of the State Working Committee that emerged from the exercise.
The fourth suit was instituted against the national leadership of the APC.
Marafa, however, was quoted to have told the gathering that the withdrawal of the suits was to further consolidate the reconciliation efforts and give Governor Matawalle the necessary support to concentrate and tackle security challenges.
He said Zamfara State APC is now united under one leadership and that all members are now working in harmony in the interest of the state.
