Chairman of Senate Joint Committees on Petroleum resources, Senator Kabir Garba Marafa, has joined the governorship race in Zamfara State.
Marafa, who represents Zamfara central senatorial district in the Senate made his intention to vie for the governorship seat when the newly elected executive members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state paid him a visit at his Yandoton-daji residence in Tsafe local government area of the state.
The ranking lawmaker in a statement said he would officially declare his intention to contest for the governorship seat in an occasion to be held in Gusau, the Zamfara state capital where all the stakeholders in the state would be in attendance.
He told the party executives that following the numerous calls across the 14 local government areas of the state, he has decided to join the governorship race.
If elected, Marafa (58) said he would fight corruption, injustice and provide the much needed leadership to stimulate the growth and development of the state.
While commending the incumbent Governor Abdul Aziz Yari for admitting his failure to provide the needed leadership to tackle the security challenges facing the state, he said he would use all the resources at his disposal to combat the banditry in the state, if elected.
