Yari stated this on the back of allegation of fraudulently enriching himself when he was directing the affairs of Zamfara and his on-going prosecution for corruption by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC.

Speaking on it on Sunday when leaders of the All Progressive Congress in the state paid him a courtesy visit at his Talata Mafara residence: “I challenge anyone who says I personalized government property or funds within and outside the country while as governor to come forward and expose me.

“As a governor, my business was to spend money which is what I did, but that was in line with the development of the state and for the benefit of the good people of the state.”
