BREAKING: Former Zamfara Governor, Sani Yerima declares for President

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

Former Governor of Zamfara State and Shari’a legal system exponent, Senator Sani Yerima, has declared to run for the 2023 presidential election under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former Senator, who represented Zamfara West at the National Assembly, was spotted at the Presidential Villa Abuja on Friday, where he came to inform President Muhammadu Buhari about his intentions.

Yerima, who’s due to pick up his expression of interest and nomination forms today, said when elected president, he would focus on fighting insecurity, poverty alleviation and ignorance of the mind.

The former governor, who is famous for introducing the Sharia legal system in his state, however, debunked claims that he was a religious extremist.

He said that the perception people hold about him was one of the reasons he would work on the ignorance of Nigerians and give every citizen a sense of belonging.

While disclosing his plans to State House Correspondents, he noted that he had secured the consent of the President to run for the exalted office.

Stonix News reports that Yerima is readily remembered for his arbitrary role in introducing the Shari’a legal system in Zamfara State as a form of protest against the presidency of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
