Bello Matawalle, the governor of Zamfara state, has accused Abdul’aziz Yari, the immediate past governor of the state, of sabotaging the security of the state.
Premium Times reports that Matawalle said this in a statement released on Thursday, November 21.
The Zamfara state governor alleged that Yari was envious of the achievements he has recorded in the areas of security in the state.
Governor Matawalle recently reached a ceasefire agreement with armed bandits who were behind the insecurity witnessed under Yari’s administration.
“The former governor Abdulaziz Yari is not happy with the peace so far recorded by the present administration and is instigating his boys against the security development,” he said.
The governor further claimed that his predecessors, Yari’s visits to the state were followed by a security breach.
According to Matawalle, the state witnessed a security breach each of the three times Yari has visited Zamfara after leaving the office.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a former governor of Zamfara state, Sani Yerima, said that President Muhammadu Buhari was never in support of the imposition of a governorship candidate for the 2019 election by ex-governor Yari.
Yerima said it was due to the planned imposition of the Zamafara state candidate for the All Progressives Congress that the party lost the election at the last poll.
The former governor said he met President Buhari before the election, adding that the president also expressed reservations over the imposition of candidates for the party during elections.
