I Have Never Spent Public Funds On Foreign Trips – Governor Yari


Zamfara State Governor Abdulaziz Yari has said he has never spent public fund on any foreign trip. He challenged his critics to prove him wrong.

Speaking through his Information and Culture Commissioner, Ahaji Umar Jibo Bukkuyum, Governor Yari also explained his activities aimed at moving the state forward developmentally.

“Instead of the people to be talking meaninglessly, they should face realities. It is a known fact that before this governor came in, so many things were lacking. For instance; a number of roads have been constructed across the state, and where there was no health institution, it has been built,” Bukkuyum said.

According to him, instead of spreading unfounded rumours, people should pray for the leaders to succeed in the discharge of their responsibilities.

The commissioner said contracts for a number of roads to be constructed in the state had been awarded by the government in addition to the ones that had been completed, stressing that recently over N1 billion was released for payment of WAEC and NECO for students.
