Gov. Abduaziz Yari of Zamfara, has advised people in the state to celebrate the outcome of the governorship and House of Assembly election within the ambits of the law.
Yari made the call on Sunday in Talata-Mafara while speaking with Journalists, and warned that celebrating political victory should not be used to disrupt existing peace and stability in the state.
“As good Nigerians, whether celebrating or not celebrating, we have to ensure total adherence to the provision of law.
“As politicians, irrespective of any political party we belong to, we have to put the development of our dear state and the country in general in the front line than our personal or political interest,” he said.
He urged the people to accept the outcome of the elections in good faith, saying that government would not fold its arms to allow people to take the law into their hands.
Yari commended the electorate in the state for their orderly and peaceful conduct during the Presidential and National Assembly as well as Saturday’s gubernatorial and state legislature elections.
In a related development, the lawmaker representing Zamfara West Senatorial District at the Senate, Alhaji Ahmad Yarima, commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for improving on efficiency of the card reader.
Yarima, who made the commendation in Bakura on Sunday while fielding questions from newsmen, said that the card reader’s performance on Saturday was better than what it was on March 28.
According to him, the improvement of the device showed that INEC listened to several calls by Nigerians for it to improve its performance after the challenges experienced during the last polls. (NAN)
