Ex-Governor Abdul-Aziz Yari of Zamfara State is in big trouble as his successor, Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle has threatened to arrest him.
The governor said; “I must let him know that presently, I am the landlord of Zamfara Government House and the number one citizen of the state. If he dares me any more with his negative statement about my position as the chief executive of the state, I must make him understand that I am in control of the state and I will order for his arrest.”
“Constitutionally, Yari should respect my position as his governor, but since he doesn’t recognise my position, I will therefore show him that I am in charge of the state.”
“I am his senior as far as politics is concerned, I was a commissioner when Yari was an ordinary driver.”
“I was also in the House of Representatives when Yari was the Zamfara State ANPP Secretary.”
“Yari must show some kind of respect to me and be thankful to Allah as a man who rose from grass to grace.”
