FAAN in a statement released revealed that the former Governor, Mr Abdulaziz Yari assaulted an official of the Airport on the 11th of July who was simply carrying out the procedures ruled out as Guidelines to help curb the Covid 19 virus.
However, Yari in a statement released admitted to have passed through the airport but did not assault any Airport official.
See Statement below:
“His Excellency Abdulaziz Yari finds the (FAAN) tweet odious and distasteful, he, therefore, demands that FAAN retract the offensive tweet and tender an immediate public apology to him for the falsehood published about his person.”
“His Excellency Abdulaziz Yari also noted the unwarranted and needlessly vicious attack on his person and reputation by the former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Femi Fani-kayode via his Twitter handle @realffk as a result of the tweet from FAAN earlier on Wednesday.”
“We wish to re-affirm that H.E Abdulaziz Yari, the former governor of Zamfara State is a law-abiding Nigerian who will never resort to violence on any issue whatsoever.”
“H.E Yari holds the Federal Government of Nigeria in very high esteem and supports all steps taken by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to fight the deadly pandemic.”
“However, the vicious attack on the person and reputation of H.E Abdulaziz Yari cannot be winked at.”
“Mr. Femi Fani-kayode will hear from H.E Yari’s lawyers in due course in order to set the record straight.”
