Senator Kabir Garba Marafa has described Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State as heartless and a mean man in human clothing because he has deliberately refused to address killings in the state and continues to collect allocations despite the fact that he had resigned as governor of the state.

He made this comments at a press conference to address the governor’s High Court appeal and the problems bedeviling the state especially the killings by bandits and herdsmen.

According to the Senator from the state, it has become necessary to find immediate solutions to the problems of the state, because all the governor seems to be pursuing is the reelection of Mr. President and not the security and welfare of the citizenry.

“Governor Yari is wicked and heartless, in fact he is a mad man in human clothing. How can he say that the APC (All Progressives Congress), held  primaries when the whole world knows there was nothing like that. His appeal on the Abuja High Court judgment is unless and baseless.”

Senator Marafa said that INEC acted according to the ambient of the law when as stated in the judgment of Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja.

“It would be recalled that a Zamfara High court judgment in Gusau presided over by Justice Muhammad Shinkafi had affirmed that there were primaries urging INEC to accept the candidates produced, and INEC after studying the two judgments decided to its earlier position on the matter,” Senator Marafa explained.
