The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has warned its members against making comments in the ongoing investigation of ex-governor Abdul’Aziz Yari by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).
The party gave the warning on Friday through the state party chairman, Lawal Liman, saying the decision was to allow the EFCC and ICPC conclude their investigations without interference.
Liman, who received APC executives from the 14 local government areas of the state at the party secretariat in Gusau, said nobody has the right to interfere with the investigation as both EFCC and ICPC were carrying out their lawful duties.
“You know, one of the manifestos of our great party, the APC and major area given priority by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is the fight against corruption.
“The former governor, Yari is a law-abiding citizen, he is not above the law, therefore he can be investigated as any Nigerian.
“Nobody has the right to say anything over the investigation until it is concluded by the relevant authorities.
“I am therefore appealing to our members to remain calm and always be law-abiding”, Liman stressed.
