A state governor in Nigeria has been described as the most useless in the country and is no other than Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari.
A veteran journalist from Zamfara State, Kadaria Ahmed has described the state governor, as the ‘most useless.’
Ms. Ahmed gave the description while taking part in a protest in Abuja on Saturday, asking State and Federal authorities to stop the rise in incessant killings recently witnessed in her state.
“As far as I am concerned, that Governor is the most useless governor in the history of Nigeria,” the journalist, who moderated the 2019 town hall meetings for presidential candidates, said when accosted by reporters.
Ahmed said Governor Yari who has been elected a senator under the All Progressive Congress (APC) was running the affairs of the state from the nation’s capital, Abuja.
The senator-elect, prior to this year’s general election had lamented over the spike in the killings going on in the State. He had pledged to step aside if that was the only solution to halt the act. Yari is yet to do so.
“Quote me, he is the most useless governor in the history of Nigeria. This is a governor whose reaction to the killings in his state was to resign as the Chief Security Officer. He went on the record to say that he cannot be the Chief Security Officer. So, I don’t know what he is still doing in office; he doesn’t care,” she continued.
“He only cares about the people of Zamfara when it comes to politics. The fact that they are getting killed does not concern him. He lives most of his time here in Abuja. How can you govern a state for eight years from Abuja? What sort of leadership is that? We are so happy he is on his way out,” she added.
While describing the outgoing governor as a hopeless leader who has not done well for the people of the state, the veteran journalist called on President Muhammadu Buhari to act in curtailing the situation.
