Sambo Marafa, a former Special Adviser to the Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle, has said his resignation was personal and not borne out of anger or a rift between him and the governor.
He made this known in a statement on Sunday.
Mr Marafa, who is the younger brother to an ex-senator, Kabir Marafa, said he resigned to enable him to concentrate on his private businesses and “most importantly to pave way for other persons from their teeming supporters to be considered for appointments.”
Mr Marafa and the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Bilyaminu Shinkafi resigned their appointments on Saturday.
The duo resigned barely two weeks after they were appointed.
Another appointee, Jamilu Zannah, rejected his appointment as commissioner for education in the state.
