Zamfara politics: Prominent Islamic cleric resigns


Sheikh Sani Monammed Jangebe, a renowned Islamic cleric, has resigned from his position as the Chief Imam.

He stated this in a letter sent to the mosque’s management committee and made available to newsmen in Gusau, the state capital, on Friday.

He also assured his support and contribution to the development and success of the mosque and Islamic religion in the state and the country at large.

In an interview with newsmen, Jangebe disclosed that his resignation was connected to a video clip in which he was seen praying for the Minister of State for Defence and immediate past governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle.

He said he did similar prayers to the incumbent Governor Dauda Lawal when he was campaigning for the position.

He said the video clip had gone viral on social media and generated mixed reactions among political elites and religious communities in the state.

Recall that Jangebe served as the Commissioner for Religious Affairs for three terms in Zamfara State
