Constitution is supreme to any other law — Yari meets with NNPP in bid for Senate Presidency



10th NASS: Yari alleges lawmakers withdrawing support for Akpabio

In his bid to become the 10th Senate President, Abdulaziz Yari, a former governor of Zamfara State, met with the National Working Committee (NWC) of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

According to ENIGERIA, the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Working Committee has selected Senators Godswill Akpabio and Jubrin Barau as its top picks for the positions of Senate President and Deputy President, respectively.

The Nigerian Constitution remained supreme, according to Yari, who spoke on Thursday night during a meeting with the NNPP leadership. He also expressed his strong commitment to the Nigerian cause.

The senator-elect for Zamfara stated that he will keep in contact with the necessary parties because he is adamant that the Constitution will be upheld.

He asserted that he is encouraged to continue his quest for the number three seat by the President’s speech that he is going to rule Nigeria according to the country’s law.

Yari, who was accompanied by Senator Osita Izunaso, said he would visit the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP), and other opposition parties to solicit their support.


He said, “The constitution is supreme to any other law. Any law that is not in tandem with the Constitution is null and void. We are very committed to the Nigerian project. We strongly believe that the Constitution is going to prevail.

“We are going to get to the floor of the House and the election will take place. And knowing that it is a democratic setting, we need to be having this kind of engagement.

“This is my first place of call. But I will also visit other parties; Labour Party, SDP, PDP, APGA, and YPP and seek the support of their members on this project.

“That is to show to you that the 10th Assembly is completely different in that we knew that we have 7 parties. The vote of every party counts and it is critical to us.

“We are going to continue with this struggle until we get there. It is not over until it is over. The most important and encouraging is the president’s speech that he is going to rule Nigeria according to the constitution of Nigeria.”
