Former Gov. Abdul’aziz Yari of Zamfara on Saturday picked the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket for the Zamfara West senate seat unopposed.
Mr Shehu Kagara, the chairman of the primaries committee, said that Yari scored 310 out of the 306 votes at the primaries to win unopposed.
He commended the delegates for the peaceful conduct of the election.
“We commend security agencies and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for their support toward peaceful conduct of the primaries,” he said.
In his remarks, Gov Bello Matawalle described Yari’s emergence as a welcome development.
Matawalle said having Yari as APC candidate for Zamfara West was a good omen for the party considering his track record of service in the state.
He urged residents of the state to continue their support for the APC administration and vote for the party at all levels in 2023 general elections.
In his acceptance speech, Yari promised to work toward the success of the party at all levels in 2023.
