The Zamfara State House of Assembly has withdrawn the impeachment notice against Governor Abdulaziz Yari, conditionally.
Speaker Sanusi Rikiji spoke in Gusau yesterday after a stakeholders meeting, including the 24 lawmakers and traditional rulers.
The monarchs were led by the Emir of Anka, Alhaji Attahiru Muhammad.
Rikiji told reporters at the end of the meeting that the lawmakers gave Yari conditions before they agreed to suspend the impeachment threat, adding that the intervention of traditional rulers and the state leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) helped in addressing the issues.
Yari described the cause of the face-off as “the handiwork of the devil”.
“The cause of the misunderstanding was addressed at the meeting and we have agreed to put aside our differences, and work together for the advancement of our state,” he said.
The legislators had threatened to impeach the governor for alleged abuse of budget implementation, misappropriation of bailout funds, deductions in workers’ salaries and his failure to pay the salaries of the 1,400 youths employed by the government two years ago.
