From: Femi Oyelola, Kaduna
A group under the auspices of Concerned Zamfara Citizens has rejected the conferment of the title of Sadaukin Shinkafi on the former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode by the Emir of Shinkafi, Alhaji Muhammad Makwashe.
Spokesman of the group, Dr Suleiman Shinkafi disclosed this while speaking to the media in Kaduna yesterday.
According to him, the Emir single unilaterally took the decision without consulting title holders and elders if the Emirate. He therefore called on the Emir to resigned within the next 24hours if he failed to withdraw the appointment he gave to Fani-Kayode.
Shinkafi said as citizens of Zamfara state, they will never support anybody who insulted their forefathers and calling the entire northerners Almajarai.
“We all know Fani-Kayode as some who always abuse our leaders, disgraced the Northern states. He abused our forefathers, people like Shehu Usman Danfodio, the Sultan of Sokoti, Muhammad Sa’ad etc.
“He even called the whole Northerners almajarai. He called Shehu Usman Danfodio a thief. We therefore called on the Emir to resign as an emir within 24 hours, and if he failed to withdraw the appointment he gave to Fani-Kayode, he would face legal action.
“Am a title holder in Shinkafi emirate. My title is Sarkin Shanu Shinkafi but together with my colleagues, I have resigned from my appointment as the Sarkin Shanu Shinkafi which was given to me by the same emir,” he said.
