The factional leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, Senator Kabir Marafa, has vehemently denied holding a secret meeting with Governor Bello Matawalle in Abuja.
Marafa said that the report was part of a desperate, wicked and callous ploy by ex-Governor Abdulaziz Yari to push him away from the APC.
Naija Buzz News had reported the order for the expulsion of the Zamfara APC faction loyal to Marafa by a panel set by the Governor Buni led APC Caretaker Committee.
The senator in his statement titled ‘Yari and his followers living in fear, delusion and desperation,’ challenged anybody with proof of the purported meeting to release it.
“They used a fictitious and fake media platform, alleging that I had a meeting with the Peoples Democratic Party Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, at his Abuja residence, where I later briefed journalists on the reasons of the said meeting,” Marafa said.
“It was the same Yari and his people who recently faked a disciplinary letter from the APC national secretariat, instructing the leadership of the Yari faction in Zamfara to initiate disciplinary action against members of my faction, and purportedly expelling some of them.
“The documents were later denied by Mr Nabena, the spokesperson for the APC National Working Committee,” the senator who represented Zamfara Central in the 8th Senate said.
