After two weeks in office, two commissioners, special adviser quit

Barely two weeks after their inauguration, two Commissioners and a Special Adviser have called it quits with the Zamfara State Government.

They are Commissioners for Education, Alhaji Jamilu Zanna and Mr Bilyaminu Shinkafi of the Ministry of Higher Education.

Alhaji Sambo Marafa, who is a younger brother to the leader of G8 members, Alhaji Kabiru Marafa, also resigned his position as the Special Adviser in charge of State Comprehensive Agricultural Revolution Programme.

Zanna told newsmen: “I am not impressed with the style of leadership of the present administration. I am not impressed at all with how the government is being run.”He said as the Campaign Director of Matawalle Campaign Organization, none of his members were given any appointment.

“For this l decided to reject the offer to serve in the governor’s cabinet to avoid embarrassment in the future.
“Another reason that made me resign is that, when I was sick and travelled to India for medical treatment, where I spent 40 days, the Governor never called me to know about my condition.

“So, I feel that I cannot serve in his cabinet,” he said.

For Shinkafi, he resigned his appointment after being appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as a member of the National Assembly Commission.

On his part, Marafa said he resigned to “pay more attention to his business.”
