The Zamfara Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs, Rabi Shinkafi, has revealed why she resigned from the state and took an appointment with the Imo government.

According to Shinkafi, her relationship with Matawalle and his wife is cordial, adding that they were involved in her decision to move to Imo.
She said: “I resigned my appointment as commissioner in Zamfara to enable me to pick another appointment as commissioner in Imo.
“I am immensely grateful to governor 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.
“All the speculations on social media about my resignation are completely false; it was just the 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 governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo and Matawalle discussed it as fellow All Progressives Congress governors and as friends too.”
