The Zamfara State Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs, Rabi Shinkafi, has resigned her appointment to take up another commissioner’s appointment in Imo State.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gusau, capital of Zamfara, on Thursday, she confirmed that she was joining the government of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State.
“I resigned my appointment as commissioner in Zamfara to enable me to pick another appointment as commissioner in Imo, I am immensely grateful to Gov. Bello Matawalle and his Wife, Hajiya Aisha Matawalle, for their kindness to me and for giving me the opportunity to serve Zamfara in different capacities,” she said.
“All the speculations in the social media about my resignation are completely false; it was just work of mischief-makers.
“I have a perfect and cordial relationship with the governor and his wife. I consider them as my family and they were in the picture of my going to Imo.
“Both Governors Hope Uzodinma of Imo and Matawalle discussed it as fellow All Progressives Congress governors and as friends too.”
