Matawalle appoints 169 aides, others to promote unity in Zamfara APC



Governor Bello Matawalle


Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara has approved the appointment of additional 169 government officials and aides, in a bid to promote unity within the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

This is contained in a nine-page official document issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Kabiru Balarabe, on Saturday in Gusau.

He announced that Isha Umar had been appointed Chairman, Zamfara Independent Electoral Commission, while Usman Magami and Bashir Abdullahi were appointed as Special Advisers.

Others are 103 Senior Special Assistants (SSAs), 28 Directors General, and 13 Special Assistants to the governor.

The list also included 10 new Permanent Commissioners and part-time members of various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), including the Hajj Commission and Law Reform Commission, among others.

The SSG said the appointments are with immediate effect.

The development came barely two months after the camps of Mr Matawalle, former governor Abdulaziz Yari and former Senator Kabiru Marafa, agreed to work together for the success of the party in the 2023 general elections.

Sequel to the reconciliation, Messrs Yari and Marafa clinched APC tickets for Zamfara West and Central Senatorial elections, respectively.
