Senator Kabir Garba Marafa's younger brother, Alhaji Sambo has explained why he resigned as the special adviser to Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara state.
Sambo, in a statement he sent to journalists, said he resigned to enable him to concentrate on his private businesses, adding there was no rift between him and the governor.
He said, most importantly, his decision would pave way for other persons from their teeming supporters to be considered for appointments.
He also said the cordial relationship between his senior brother and the governor spanning decades is intact and flourishing for the benefit of the state.
“Governor Bello has been a senior brother to me because he is a very close friend of my elder brother.
“The struggle we made that saw us to the Supreme Court was not done to put PDP in government, it was done to defend our collective rights and that of our people.
“My gratitude, therefore, goes to Allah (SWT) then to Governor Bello for finding me suitable to be appointed as his special adviser out of over four million people in Zamfara state,” he said in the statement.
He revealed that before tendering his resignation, he intimated his brother, Senator Marafa who supported and advised him to inform Governor Matawalle.
“When I informed the governor, he reasoned with me and he thus happily accepted my resignation, wished me well in my business and promised to look for a suitable replacement from one of our deserving members.
“Like my brother, I will always pray and work for the success of Matawalle's administration because his success, is ours. I'm ready to make any sacrifice for our beloved state,” he said.
Meanwhile, a newly appointed aide to the governor of Zamfara state, Jamilu Zannah, has rejected his appointment by Governor 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.
