The Deputy Governor of Bauchi state, Engr. Nuhu Gidado, has resigned, and he has revealed the reason he made the shocking move.
This was contained in a letter dated May 16 and which was addressed to the state governor, Mohammed A. Abubakar.
In the resignation letter, which was made available by text on Wednesday, Nuhu Gadado the deputy governor said he had earlier reiterated his commitment to serve for a single term, and was the reason he resigned.
He said his spirit did not want him to stay for any longer and remaining in office will not be fair and truthful to the state Governor.
“Ordinarily, I should have remained up to the end of the tenure, but, with the current dampened spirit and waning zeal as it relates to my official engagements, my continued stay will not be fair and truthful to you as my brother and leader.
“ In this regard, I feel sure that, Your Excellency will readily recollect the most recent one – on – one discussion we had, precisely, on Thursday, April 19th, 2018, in your office, where, among other issues, I expressed to you, my contemplation to ‘step aside’, if need be, in order to free my conscience.
“ I regret to say that it has become necessary to yield to that inner calling, and may this development be in accordance with the blessed will and guidance of Allah (SWT), Ameen,”
