Zamfara crisis: APC expels Yari, Shuaibu


Less than a week after leaving the Government House, former Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State has been expelled by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
His expulsion was announced on Monday by Zamfara State chapter of the party.
At an emergency meeting held in Gusau, the state capital, the Deputy National Chairman of the party, Senator Lawal Shuaibu, was also expelled.
Shuaibu, last week, told the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, to resign. 
The state chapter of the party blamed Yari for the deep trouble it found itself during the past elections.
“Yari and his boys scuttled the efforts of our national headquarters to conduct primaries on the 3rd and 7th of October, 2018. His nefarious activities led to the death of six persons and over 200 others were injured,” the party said.
Yari, Shuaibu and their loyalists were told to surrender all properties of the party in their possession.
“Following this development, we are urging them to immediately surrender all the belongings of the party in their possession, including funds. The party recalled how the former governor frustrated its efforts to conduct primaries last year, thus laying the foundation for the electoral misfortune that befell it in the state.
“After reviewing the outing of our party in the last general election and the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement, we, hereby, dismiss the former governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, and the Deputy National Chairman, Sen Lawal Shuaibu, from the APC”.
