In a petition, Thursday to the IGP dated July 15, 2021, Shinkafi, who is also the chief Director, Patriots for the Advancement of Peace and Social Development (PAPSD), said the activities of Yari and his supporters were generating tension within the state.

“Following the defection of the chief Governor of Zamfara State Hon. Bello Muhammad (Matawallen Maradun) and that i , from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and therefore the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) on 29th June 2021, at the mega rally organised in Gusau to welcome us into the mainstream APC at the rally, Chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, the chief Governor of Yobe State, publicly announced the dissolution of all the party executives from the state to the ward levels.

“Governor Buni went on to bestow on the chief Governor of Zamfara State the position of the APC leader in Zamfara State. each day after the rally, on June 30, 2021, the previous governor of Zamfara State Abdulaziz Yari who was attending at the mega rally, met together with his factional leaders of the APC in Kaduna and debunked all the pronouncements made by the national chairman,” Shinkafi said.

He said by this action, Yari and his supporters have constituted themselves into troublemakers, claiming that they have been trying to cause political tension within the state, due to their selfish political agenda before the 2023 elections.
