A strong ally and confidant of the former Chairman of the Nigerian Governors forum and former two term governor of Zamfara state, Hon. Bashir Muhammed Dala has described as imagination of the devil, the porported decamping of former governor of Zamfara State AbdulAziz Yari to the peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Dala who flay media report that Yari dumped the APC for the PDP, said his opponent for the APC national Chairmanship are out to blackmail him.
In a statement, Dala said the former governor only attended the wedding ceremony of one of the children of a renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Bala Lau which also had in attendance Senators, Governors and top echelons of both the APC and the PDP.
“One then wonders why the singling out of AbdulAziz Yari,” Dala said adding that former Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki handed over to Yari as chairman of the esteemed Nigerian Governors forum as such, there is no law that says they cannot interact or exchange pleasantries during any occasion irrespective of party affiliation.
“Afterall, Asiwaju Tinubu has had course to interact with Saraki during ocassions so why is that of Yari different? The reasons are not unconnected with APC chairmanship contest that detractors sees the shinning star of Yari as a threat.
“The general public as well as followers should please ignore the antics of enemies to distract them. Former President Jonathan has visited President Buhari several times with no discrimination irrespective of party differences. The Waziri Ibrahim’s ideology of politics without bitterness should be emulated. Sheikh Bala Lau is a role model to all irrespective of party affiliation.
“The online report is mischievous, myopic and callous designed to create confusion among strong supporters of Yari. As a frontline APC top echelons who has sacrificed for the party from the scratch will not do anything inimical to the survival of the party at all levels.”
“His excellency has no any link with PDP nor sabotaging it effort inorder to gain anything. He attended the wedding just like any other personality. He remains a bonafide member and top notcher of the party. The online report remains the imagination of political detractors bent on destroying his hard-earned reputation,” Dala added.
