Well he said it, yes. But only because gaara was a child and he told him so his mother would be always with him and protect him.
In reality it was the Shukaku-bijuu which lead the sand, just got he was a lil bit crazy to these times (could not sleep, nearly everyone in his own village wanted to see him death, his father even send people to kill him: not good for staying all calm and not going crazy, heh) he stood in believing that it was his mother.
Difficult to explain or say it right... I guess he was just a bit crazy about this since of Yashamaru's words and so, especially in the end where he told him that his mother in real hated him... so some kind of 'not accepting' these words and he stood withthe believe that the sand is his mother.
