The Zamfara state Governor, Abdulaziz Yari has said the move by legislators in the state to impeach him is selfish and against the will of the public.

Yari said he has always had a cordial relationship with the lawmakers, adding that there has never been any problem between them.

The Governor also dismissed claims by the lawmakers that he refused to see them, saying they did not follow the right channel.

Yari said “There has never been any bill brought to me by the House of Assembly that l did not assent to nor have l ever spent money without their approval.

“This failure of the legislators to follow the right channel led the people of the state to suspect that the lawmakers were planning evil.”

Adding that “As members of the same political party, we have always discussed the problems and prospects of our party and proffered solutions.

“At the moment, the only challenge we have is that of security, which we are now adequately addressing with help from the Federal Government.”

The Zamfara state House of Assembly accused Yari of misappropriating N11b bailout fund, N1b agricultural loan released to the state by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) among many other alleged offences.

The state Governor however said he did not spend any money without the approval of the lawmakers.
