“The APC’s leadership at national level is impressed with the efforts of the Zamfara state APC leader, Abdul’Aziz Yari in keeping the party moving in the state despite being the opposition party in the state.
“With the steadfast of Yari in keeping alive APC in Zamfara will propel the party to reclaim its snatched victory in the next elections in the state,” he said.
Earlier, the Zamfara state APC caretaker committee chairman, Alhaji Lawal Liman Muhammad commended Yari for his unflinching support and assistance to party members in the state.
