The Zamfara State All Progressives Congress (APC) Yari-led faction has called on the Police to for the sake of sustaining peaceful political runnings in the state investigate and arrest perpetrators behind disrupting the PDP congress scheduled to hold last Monday.

This was contained in a statement by the Chairman Publicity Committee of the APC Yari-led faction, Ibrahim Muhammad Birnin Magaji, distancing the faction from involving in what it described as barbaric in politics against the PDP in the state.

“In the statement which went viral on social media quoted one Malam Aminu Gyangyam, Principal Private Secretary to Zamfara state Deputy Governor, Barrister Mahdi Aliyu alledging that the attack which left many properties belonging to PDP and its members including a copy of The Glorious Qur’an was unleashed by APC thugs loyal to Governor Bello Mohammed Matawallen Maradun.

“It is on this premise that we want to state categorically that , Zamfara State APC loyal to the former Governor of Zamfara State, Hon. Dr Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar was not part of this alledged dastardly, undemocratic and uncivilised act of barbarism
in this 21st century.

“The faction under its Chairman, Hon. Lawal M. Liman, while condemning the act calls for full scale investigation by the State Command of The Nigeria Police Force to unravel the perpetrators and sponsors of this callous act capable of jeopardising the fragile security situation in the state”, the statement added.

According to him, it was not in the character of former Governor Abdulaziz Yari while in office as the Executive Governor for 8 years, to use any instrument of Party or Government to cause mayhem to any of the opposition Political Parties at any point in time.

The statement further stressed that, “When the PDP was to hold its Presidential campaign rally for 2019 general election in Gusau, access to state government facility where it received its then Presidential Candidate, HE Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was instantly granted to the party by his administration”.

The Chairman maintained that APC and its leader Abdulaziz Yari strongly believe in the freedom of association which provides equal opportunity to Nigerians to belong to a political party of their choice and practice same with out let or hindrance as enshrined in the Constitution of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria.

The Chairman Yari-led faction, Lawal M. Liman has lauded members of the party under his watch for remaining peaceful and law abiding even at the face of current difficulties and persecution and urged them to sustain the magnitude.
