Alhaji Muhammad Makwash in Zamfara State, the Shinkafi Emirate Council yesterday declared that it would not withdraw the title conferred on the former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode by the Emir Of Shinkafi, because it’s “irrevocable and irreversible”.

Fani-Kayode, during his 7 days tour at Zamfara was conferred with the traditional title of “Sadaukin Shinkafi” by the Emirate Council.

Upon the conferment, three title holders who described the award for Femi disappointing resigned their position in protest.

Reacting yesterday, the Wambai Shinkafi, Dr. Sani Abdullahi Shinkafi, who spoke on behalf of the emirate declared that “the move could not be reversed as the Emir has the power and the discretion to confer any Chieftaincy title on any person whom he feels is deserving of such a title, just as he cautioned that politicians should not bring ethnicity and religion into the matter.”
