Former Zamfara Governor, Abdulaziz Yari has disclosed that he reconciled with his successor, Bello Matawalle in the interest of the state.

Yari noted that the recent reconciliation of APC warring factions in the state was not for personal gain but in the interest of peace and tranquillity.

He commended Matawalle for his efforts in ensuring the success of the reconciliation drive and development of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

He said: “This came at the right time when unity, peace and stability are highly needed to address a lot of issues affecting our dear state.

“I and Gov Matawalle decided to reconcile our differences for the interest of our people, not for any personal gain.

“I commend this high delegation for the visit and I urge you to extend this reconciliation drive to our teeming supporters at the grassroots.

“As government representatives, we should extend good messages for the development of our great party and general development of the state.

“Gov Matawalle should be commended for his efforts to ensure the success of this reconciliation.

“We should support him as our leader with good intention, to promote peace, stability and general development of our dear state.”
