A newly appointed aide to the governor of Zamfara state, Jamilu Zannah, has rejected his appointment by Governor Bello Matawalle as a commissioner in the state
While speaking to journalists in Gusau shortly after he arrived the state from a medical tour in India, Zannah said, he rejected his appointment as a member of the state's executive council because of the inability of the state governor to fulfil some campaign promises made to the electorates before his election.
Zannah who was a campaign director for Governor Matawalle in the last general election said he had told the governor about his health challenges before travelling.
However, the former campaign director said all through the time he was in India, the governor never called to know his condition.
“Prior to the election, we used our resources and wooed good people of the state for us to succeed. I’m second to none in sacrificing our resources and energy to bring this government onboard."
“We made a lot of promises to such people, but non of the pledges were redeemed and we felt embarrassed. This is not what we promised our people. Based on this, I decided to quit,” Zannah said.
Noting that he would accept any appointment for his selfish sake, Zannah said it will not be accepting any position from the governor might restrict him from serving his people.
“I would not be accepting any appointment for my selfish sake but for the sake of the people behind us. This will not be enough for me to serve as a platform on which I will carry my people along or help them,” he added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Governor Matawalle had revoked a contract awarded to a former governor of Kebbi state, Adamu Aleiro, by the state.
The governor said the decision was taken because the former governor's company and other contractors who collected jobs from the state did not do well while some had already abandoned the projects despite collecting a huge amount of money for it.
