Zamfara Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, said the grievances of the state legislature, which led to impeachment process against him were personal, selfish and against public interest.
Mr. Yari made the remark while fielding questions from journalists on Saturday in Gusau.
“There 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,” he said.
He said the lawmakers’ claim that he had refused to see them to discuss matters of public interest was untrue.
He said the legislators were not able to see him because they did not follow the “right channel”.
“This failure of the legislators to follow the right channel led the people of the state to suspect that the lawmakers were planning evil,” the governor said.
He said that he had always had a cordial working relationship with the lawmakers.
“As members of the same political party, we have always discussed the problems and prospects of our party and proffered solutions.
“At the moment, the only challenge we have is that of security, which we are now adequately addressing with help from the Federal Government,” he said.
The governor said the issues raised by the legislators for his impeachment were not his to resolve.
According to him, since there is a party mechanism in place that handles such issues, it will be tabled and addressed by the party accordingly.
“This is so, so that we can continue as members of one family,” he stated. (NAN)
