“ I don’ t want to comment on what is happening in Zamfara State but a time will come when everything will be put on the table . For now, we will allow him ( the governor ) so that he will not say we are distracting him from governance . ”

The former governor said fighting insecurity required the support of all Nigerians .

“ As a one – time Chief Security Officer of the state , I know what the issue of security entails . I know the predicament of the security and that of state when it comes to the issue of security .

“ So , I don’ t know whether to continue to change security chiefs will be the solution or getting the right equipment for them or facilities to deal with situation, ” he said.

The former governor said he was at the party’ s national secretariat to felicitate with Oshiomhole on the Supreme Court judgment validating the election of APC ’ s governorship candidate , Mr Hope Uzodinma.

Yari said it was a double standard for the PDP to hail the Supreme Court on Zamfara and criticise the justices on Imo .

“ We have come to visit the party’ s National Chairman on the issue of Supreme Court after the judgment and also intimidation by the opposition PDP who are making noise about the issue . ”

“ If the PDP makes noise on issue of Imo what about Zamfara, what are we going to say , did we make any protest ? We did not come out to the streets to protest after Nigerians said the judgment of Zamfara was a miscarriage of justice ,” he said.
