Written by on June 2, 2023

One of the frontline candidates for the President of the Senate and former Governor of Zamfara State, Senator Abdul’aziz Yari, has dared his party, the All Progressive Congress (APC), to contest for the nation’s number three position.

Yari, who is representing Zamfara West Senatorial District in the upper legislative chamber of the National Assembly, is protesting against the choice of his party which had nominated Senators Godswill Akpabio and Jibrin Barau as president of the senate and deputy senate president respectively.

The former governor who was at the national secretariat of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Abuja on Thursday said Nigeria’s Constitution remains supreme in his quest to vie for the office of the Senate President of the 10th National Assembly which will be inaugurated on June 13, 2023.

While condemning those who are flying religious kites to discredit credible candidates, he said he would not be deterred as he will continue to consult with relevant stakeholders about his aspiration.

He added that he would also visit the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the Social Democratic Party (SDP), and the Young Progressives Party (YPP) for support.
