2019: Gov Yari declares his intention in Zamfara


By Juliet Odey
Governor Abdul’aziz Yari has declared his intention to contest for Zamfara West senatorial seat ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The governor will seek to upstage Sen. Ahmad Sani-Yarima who is serving his third term as Senator representing Zamfara West. Yari, who announced this in Gusau on Monday, said he was contesting for the seat because of the interest he has in legislative process, and to serve his people.
“You know, I was from the National Assembly before I become a governor, in fact, my colleagues from the National Assembly used to say I am here on sabbatical.
“So, my going to the Senate is like I am going home.
“In fact even some people in the Presidency are asking me why I want to go to senate, I told them is just an interest.
“I learned a lot from the National Assembly and what I learned there has really assisted me in my administration as governor in the last eight years, especially in the areas of budget process and resources management,” Yari said.
