Reason I want to quit is not political – Gov. Yari  


Zamfara State Governor, Abdul’ aziz Yari reiterated his position to abdicate his office and allow the declaration of a state of emergency on on account of the intractable insecurity in the state.

Yari restated his view on the issue on Thursday during his visit to the Villa in an interview with newsmen.

“I did not call for declaration of state of emergency in the state out of politics, I am serious about it.

“The way some people are talking about it politically, I am not looking at it that way. Since I assumed office, I have never looked at insecurity as being political but I am looking at it as criminality and I approach it in a way it could be solved.

“Some politicians for about three years, have been calling for a state of emergency and I said if the declaration of state of emergency will solve the problem, I am ready,” the governor explained.
