Senate Presidency: Reward performance, don’t consider religion or ethnicity – Yari tells APC, Tinubu


Former Governor of Zamfara State and one of the senators-elect vying for the Senate Presidency, Abdul’Aziz Yari has urged the All Progressives Congress to reward performance and not consider ethnicity or religion when zoning key offices in the 10th National Assembly.

He said this on Sunday evening, in Abuja after meeting with President Buhari.Yari said he’s advising the party, that they should reward performance, not religion, because religion is not in the Constitution of Nigeria, and it is not in our manifesto and our constitution.

He argued that the North West, being the highest contributor of votes to ensure the victory of President-elect, Bola Tinubu in the February 25 presidential elections, should be offered the opportunity to produce the next Senate President.

Speaking on the role the North West played in the presidential election, Yari said everyone knows the role that they played despite the fact that other people were thinking we have our own. But we voted on the party line, which gave the APC the leeway to grab the presidency again.

He urged the party to do the right thing and warned those who are going around saying ‘Muslim-Christian,’ to be very careful. He said our education in politics is more than that now.
