Senator representing Zamfara West senatorial district, Abdulaziz Abubakar Yari, has rued his loss to the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, in the 10th senate presidency election.
Akpabio emerged as the winner of the hotly-contested election on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, having polled a total of 63 votes to ward off the challenge from his fellow party man, Yari, who got 46 votes.
Yari, who is also a former governor of Zamfara State, entered the contest in defiance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) zoning and endorsement arrangement.
Though Akpabio was the ruling party and President Bola Tinubu’s preferred choice, the former Zamfara governor had other ideas to upset the apple cart and remained a threat until the end of the contest
Speaking on his defeat to Akpabio, Yari believed he had the number to win the election until some of his colleagues who had pledged their votes switched allegiance at the last minute.
