The Zamfara state commissioner for science and technology, Bilyaminu Shinkafi, on Monday, December 23 explained why he dropped his appointment for another one with the All Progressive Congress (APC)-led federal government in Abuja.
Shinkafi, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was recently appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari as the national commissioner at the National Assembly Service Commission, representing Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi and Katsina states.
“With this appointment, I can serve the country and my state better,” he told Premium Times.
He, however, refuted the speculations that he has shifted his political loyalty to former governor Abdulaziz Yari who allegedly influenced his appointment.
“I accepted the appointment based on patriotism. Keep politics aside, it’s time for service delivery, I’m always with the progressives,” he stated.
Shinkafi said Governor Matawalle had appointed him as commissioner for the unity of the state.
“He didn’t consider party affiliation, there is no any grudges between us, I accepted my new appointment based on the service I will deliver to the people of Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi and Katsina.
“I tried to convince people that politics is all about service delivery no matter where someone finds himself. By virtue of the new appointment, I think I can serve my country and my state better,” he said.
Meanwhile, 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.
