Following agitations for the zoning of Senate Presidency to the Northwest geopolitical zone of Nigeria, a group Northwest Progressives Forum (NPF), at the weekend said former Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, is the best for the job.
The Press Conference in Kaduna, noted that Yari, is eminently competent for the job his experience and proven integrity, honesty.
According to Convener of the group, Nasir Dambatta, said “at the risk of overstating the issue, we are convinced that among all the people rooting for the Senate presidency from the North-West, only Yari possesses the proven integrity, honesty and experience necessary for such a position.
“We feel obligated, after considering so many factors, to suggest that when eventually the slot is micro-zoned to the Northwest, the person that is eminently competent for the job is former Zamfara State Governor, AbdulAziz Yari.
“This and other groups, after critically examining the credentials of all the candidates being presented for the job, particularly from the North-West have come to the conclusion that. Yari is most suitable to be the next President of the Nigerian Senate.”
The group noted that the North has been tested and trusted with power making the region eminently eligible for the Senate Presidency to stabilize and balance of power.
“The North-West also has the record of giving the APC ticket the most volume of votes which positions the region as the natural and legitimate Claimant to Senate Presidency.
“The rule of fairness, justice and ordinary decency demands in this circumstance, the North-West, and not any other zone, deserves to be rewarded for its commitment to the APC and the Asiwaju ideals which it
“We therefore join the call for the APC and the president-elect to act justly and fairly by zoning the position of the Senate President to the region that gave him more than 30 percent of his winning votes.
“We call attention to the standard northern tradition of never compromising national unity whenever given the opportunity and cannot afford the residing of Executive, Legislative and Judiciary Powers in one region.”
The group therefore endorsed Yari, for the President of the 10th Senate, saying “we join other groups in categorically endorsing AbdulAziz Yari as the most competent for the job and call on stakeholders in the zone to do same
“We specifically call on Asiwaju to wade in and ensure the zoning of the Senate presidency to the Northwest and to move in favour of Yari.”
