Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state has appointed Ms. Rabi Shinkafi, an indigene of Zamfara state as commissioner in the state.
Rabi Shinkafi was the commissioner for Women and Children Affairs in Zamfara under Governor Bello Matawalle.
Rabi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) today, Thursday in Gusau that- “I resigned my appointment as commissioner in Zamfara to enable me to pick another appointment as commissioner in Imo.”
She said further- “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.
“All the speculations in the social media about my resignation are completely false; it was just work of mischief makers,’’ she said.
She said- “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 (of Zamfara) discussed it as fellow All Progressives Congress governors and as friends too,’’ Ms Shinkafi added.
