“I am not Zahra Buhari’s lover and never gave her $200m”-Zamfara Governor

Chairman of Governors Forum & Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulazeez Yari has denied reports that he is having a sizzling romance with Zahra, one of the daughters of President Muhammadu Buhari. He also denied that he has divorced one of his wives, Hadiza Umaru Shinkafi  to make way for Zarah and splashed a $200million gift on Buhari’s daughter.

Yari’s position was contained in his letters to the publishers of the publications, accusing them of casting him in bad light and requesting them to retract the publication said the reports published in two weekly publications were false.

The letters, dated 18 and 19 January, were written for the governor by his lawyer, Mahmud Magaji (SAN), wherein Yari threatened to sue the publications for defamation, in which he would demand N100 billion (in the case of the first publication) and N10 billion (against the second publication) should they fail to retract the publication and tender apology within seven days.

Part of the letters read: “The above publication, no doubt, is false and defamatory, and it is intended to bring the reputation of our client to ridicule and cause odium or malignity to our client.

“Since the above publication, our client has received countless phone calls and text messages from family, friends, colleagues and associates, who incessantly call to enquire about the said publication.

“Consequent upon the above, it is our client’s instruction that we demand from you published retraction of the said defamatory piece in three national newspapers inclusive of your own,” Yari said.
