Outgoing chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) and Governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari, has said that given the assistance President Buhari has extended to the states, it behoves on the governors to reciprocate the gesture and cooperate fully during his (Buhari’s) second term.

Yari, whose term as a state governor ends on May 29, yesterday told state house correspondents in Abuja that the succeeding leadership of the forum must work while also keying into the President’s next level agenda. He recalled that the present membership of the forum had cooperated in full with the president who, according to Yari, exhibited magnanimity by providing bailouts, which enabled states pay workers salaries.

The governor, who will represent Zamfara at the ninth senate, attributed his victory and that of the governorship candidate whom he supported to his ability to manage the direct primaries adopted by his All Progressive Congress (APC) platform.

Yari said he was excited at the outcome of the Zamfara election and thanked the people of the state for their resilience, adding, “Despite the daily attacks, the security agencies were up and doing and their presence in the state was well appreciated by the people and the people appreciate the efforts of Mr. President which took us to where we are.”
