Zamfara State Governor Abdulaziz Yari Abubakar on Saturday said his administration and the loyal All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the state have accepted the verdict of the Supreme Court which nullified the elections of the state APC conducted in 2019.
The Governor said this while addressing a gathering of the APC supporters at the Government House, Gusau, the state capital.
Mallam Ibrahim Dosara, Special Adviser to the Governor on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communication, in a signed statement, said the Governor acknowledged party members and its supporters in the state who had done everything possible to ensure APC did not lose Zamfara state.
“But as Allah wanted, the party lost the state,” the statement said.
He said the APC members have also done their best in ensuring the viability and capability of the party to continue to hold onto power to provide more dividends of democracy to the people of the state, but as Allah wanted it, the Supreme Court judgment went the way it happened.
Gov Yari, therefore, urged all members of the party as well as other citizens of the state to remain calm, peaceful and law abiding.
He also directed security agencies in the state to be more vigilant to ensure adequate protection of lives and property of the people in the state.
He also promised to carry all members along to the next level and urged them to be more united.
