Abdul Aziz Yari, the former governor of Zamfara state, has faulted both former presidents, Olusegun Obasanjo, and Goodluck Jonathan’s calls for a new National Conference when the ones they conducted during their administrations yielded nothing.
Speaking in a statement in Abuja through his Media Aide, Ibrahim Dosara, Yari said both former presidents wasted precious time and taxpayers money on the exercise, without implementing the reports of the conferences they organized.
”The former leader has been obsessed with conferences since the one he organized in 2005 to perpetuate himself in power through the third term failed woefully. “President Goodluck Jonathan also organized a conference purportedly to advance his ambition. Taxpayers funds and quality time were wasted at the conferences but with nothing to show for it. Neither of the leaders implemented the reports of the conferences they organized.
“It is high time for all political leaders to eschew bitterness and avoid using our fellow citizens as guinea pigs in our ambitious political laboratories. Our security agencies should be supported and allow to perform their duties of maintenance of law and order without fear or favour, and without infecting ethnic and sectional or religious venoms into their modus operandi.”
