Zamfara State: Commissioner resigns after one month


The newly appointed commissioner for education in Zamfara State, Alhaji Jamilu Aliyu Zannah has resigned from office after less than one month.


Hon. Aliyu Zannah announced this in Gusau shortly after he arrived home from medical trip to India, where he received medical treatment before he was appointed as the commissioner of education in the state.

According to him, he rejected the nomination and appointment as commissioner due to the inability of the state governor, Bello Mohammed Matawalle to fulfill some necessary campaign promises made earlier to the electorate.

“Lack of consultations also were among the reasons that made me to resign from the governor’s nomination and appointment as commissioner,” he said.

It could be recalled that Zannah was the campaign coordinator of Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle.

Our correspondent further learnt that his resignation could not be unconnected with his desire to be on a position much higher than a commissioner, since he believed he worked seriously for the success of Gov. Matawalle.
