Zamfara Government Rejects Maryam Ismaila’s Appointment as Permanent Secretary

The Zamfara State Government has opposed the appointment of Maryam Ismaila as a permanent secretary by President Bola Tinubu.
The state government asserts that Ismaila is not a native of Zamfara State and lacks the qualifications required for the role.
In a letter to the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Ahmad Liman, the Zamfara State Head of Service, expressed that Ismaila’s selection has caused discontent within the state, urging the selection committee to remove her from the list.
The letter contended that appointing Ismaila would perpetuate the marginalization of Zamfara State in federal representation.
“For all purposes and intendment, the candidate is never an indigene of Zamfara State and would not legally claim or enjoy representation for the sake of the good people of Zamfara State. Furthermore, no purported documentation in that respect will legally qualify her to be a bonafide indigene of Zamfara State,” the state government stated.
Contrary to these claims, investigations indicate that Ismaila hails from Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, with her grandparents born in the state. Her late parents were Christian missionaries from the Hausa minority Christians in Tsafe LGA.
