More than 10 opposition parties in Zamfara State yesterday accused Governor Abdulaziz Yari of marginalising them in appointments of into offices, including Special Advisers.
The joint Chairman of the aggrieved parties and Chairman of African Democratic Congress (ADC), Badamasi Bello, said yesterday in Gusau that; “in the last seven years, preferential treatment was being given to some opposition parties while others were sidelined.
” Some of the aggrieved parties include the Accord Party (AP), African Democratic Congress (ADC), Democratic People’s Party (DPP), New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Action Alliance (AA), Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM), among others.
Bello said all the marginalised parties had participated fully in the 2011 and 2015 elections, including the 2016 local government elections and that in spite irregularities they opted not to challenge election results in court.
“The aggrieved parties have tremendously and positively helped in reshaping politics in the state.
It is our fervent hope that Governor Abdulaziz Yari will look into our complaints with a view to making necessary adjustments and corrections,” he added.
