‘Buhari won’t be part of your ungodly agenda’ – Senator Marafa attacks Gov. Yari

Chairman of Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Senator Kabiru Marafa, has raised the alarm over alleged attempt by the Governor Abdulaziz Yari to influence the outcome of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in Zamfara State.
Eyes Of Lagos gathered that, In a statement on Monday, Marafa said that Governor Yari’s iftar dinner (breaking of Ramadan fast) with President Muhammadu Buhari in Saudi Arabia was an attempt to influence the outcome of the court.
He noted that Yari and the Emir of Maradun, Alhaji Garba Tambari, had iftar dinner with President Buhari in Makkah, Saudi Arabia yesterday.
Recall the Supreme Court had fixed the judgement of the appeals filed by Yari and APC on the ruling of Appeal Court Sokoto on Zamfara APC candidates tussle for Friday.
The governor’s camp had requested the Supreme Court to set aside the judgement of the Appeal Court which upturned the ruling of the Zamfara High Court upon which INEC recognised the candidates nominated by the governor for the last general elections.
However, Marafa said in his statement, “the uninvited and unwanted company of Yari at this point in time when the Supreme Court had fixed Friday 24 for judgement on Yari and APC Appeal amounts to contempt.
“It is all aimed at showing the panel of the esteemed justices and Nigerians that the president is friendly and sympathetic to his ungodly act.
