Zamfara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari has dismissed plot by the State House of Assembly to impeach him, saying the motivation of the lawmakers was selfish and against public interest.
Fielding questions from newsmen in Gusau on Saturday, Yari stated â€œThere has never been any bill brought to me by the House of Assembly that l did not assent to nor have l ever spent money without their approval.â€
He said the lawmakersâ€™ claim that he had refused to see them to discuss matters of public interest was untrue but added that they had never followed what he termed the â€˜right channel.â€™
â€œThis failure of the legislators to follow the right channel led to the people of the state to suspect that the lawmakers were planning evil,â€ he said.
Yari said he has cordial working relationship with the lawmakers, saying, â€œAs members of the same political party, we have always discussed the problems and prospects of our party and proffered solutions.
â€œAt the moment, the only challenge we have is that of security, which we are now adequately addressing with help from the Federal Government.â€
