Former governor of Zamfara State, Abdul-Aziz Yari has revealed that he wasn’t the first governor of the state. He made the revelation when responding to why he failed to reduce the 92% poverty level in Zamfara when he was in office.
Yari, who is in the race to be the 10th Senate President, was on Arise TV recently and one of the TV anchors, Rufai Oseni, asked him why he should be the next Senate President when he could not reduce the poverty level in his state while living an ostentatious life.
While responding, Yari said: “What has Zamfara state have to do with the Senate President? Before me how many governors governed Zamfara state? Am I the first governor”
When asked what he did to ameliorate poverty in the state, he said: “Am I the first governor? Am I not? It is on record that I was the governor and I have done my best. The issue of poverty is all over the Northern parts of the country. You know it so it is not the one that I can make magic.”
