Senator representing Zamfara Central at the National Assembly, Kabiru Marafa, says Allah, the angels and the entire world knew, in reality that no party primary took place in the Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressives Party at the time the party claimed they held one.
He says Governor Abdul’azeez Yari therefore “offended God” for insisting the All Progressive Congress Party conducted party primaries in the state.
Marafa, while speaking with State House Correspondents on political developments in Zamfara State, faulted the governor for initiating legal action over the matter and asked God to forgive Yari for misleading the people of the state on the issue.
He, however, commended the Court of Appeal for “an excellent job,’’ saying he initially thought he might not get justice from his appeal on the matter.
The Appeal Court had, on March 25, nullified the primary election conducted by the Yari faction of the state chapter of the APC against the previous ruling by state high court.
He said: “It is a promise that God will never help injustice against justice. So, at the end of the whole thing, truth will prevail, undoubtedly. No fear about that. The truth is, there were no primaries in the state, the world knows, Allah knows, the angel knows, everybody knows.
Marafa lamented Yari’s actions have put the people of the state to shame, prayed that God would forgive him for what he had done to the state.
According to him, a leader telling lies in a state like Zamfara that practices Sharia is an anathema, and leaders deserve prayers from their followers to avert God anger.
“I pray, may God forgive him for what he has done, because to us, God has paid us immensely,’’ he added.
