“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 in social media about my resignation are completely false; it was just the work of mischief-makers,” 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 Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo and Matawalle discussed it as fellow All Progressives Congress governors and as friends too,” Mrs Shinkafi added.
