Former Zamfara Governor Abdulaziz Yari has revealed the qualities the next All Progressive Congress APC Chairman needs .
According to him, only a fighter who feels the pulse of the people and have abundant experience in political battles can lead the party to success in 2023.
Speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Sunday he said that he is such a leader and has what it takes to lead the ruling party to electoral victory in 2023.
He added that he was not disturbed by speculations that they are planning to scheme him out of the chairmanship race,
Reacting to the speculation, Yari said: “Somebody told me that some of my colleagues and former colleagues are interested in the number one and number two slots, so if the National Chairmanship seat goes to the North West, nothing will get to them, so they ganged up to neutralize Yari.
“If God decides that it should be, it is going to be. People can maneuver and do all sorts of calculations but they will not prevail.
“All I know is this, I can lead this party and they know what I can do.”
Speaking on APC chances in 2023, the former Zamfara Governor said that “APC has abundant chances of winning the 2023 elections in a very remarkable way.”
He said that he has the political credentials that qualify him to be the National Chairman of the party, recalling his roles during the Abacha era and in the formation of the defunct All Peoples Party (APP)
Yari dismissed various corruption allegations against him as mere political gambits from faceless persons.
According to him: “Some persons can fabricate lies but at the end of the day, the truth will prevail. There are so many other things they have said that are a mere tissue of lies meant to try to get a good man down but they will never succeed.”
