Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Gov­er­nor Ab­du­laziz Yari of Zam­fara State has shrugged off the im­peach­ment threat against him, say­ing there is no such plot.

The gov­er­nor was speak­ing to State House cor­re­spon­dents late Wed­nes­day night af­ter a meet­ing of the Nige­ria Gov­er­nors’ Fo­rum (NGF) which was held at the Old Ban­quet of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Yari, who is also the chair­man of the gov­er­nors’ fo­rum, said not only had the State House of As­sem­bly de­nied plot­ting his im­peach­ment, but had also de­scribed it as a mis­un­der­stand­ing.

The gov­er­nor, who main­tained that his state was at peace, how­ever, noted that in any democ­racy, ev­ery­one could be hurt.

“Even the state as­sem­bly says there is no such move, and that there was a mis­un­der­stand­ing. But you know it is democ­racy we are prac­tis­ing and ev­ery­one can be hurt. We are peace­ful,” Yari said.
