Gov. Yari wants to return to senate


By Blessing James, Abuja
The Governor Zamfara State, Abdul’aziz Yari has formally declared his intention to contest for Zamfara West senatorial seat ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Governor Yari announced his intention to newsmen in Gusau on Monday, stating that he is contesting for the seat because of the interest he has in legislative process.
“You know, I was from the National Assembly before I become a governor, in fact my colleagues from the National Assembly use to say I am here on sabbatical.
“So, my going to senate is like I am going back home, some people are asking me why I want to go to senate?
“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.
“You know National Assembly politics is different from that of executive. 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,” he said.
Gov. Yari is seeking to upstage Senator Ahmad Sani Yarima who is serving his third term as Senator representing Zamfara West.
