The deputy governor of Bauchi state, Nuhu Gidado has resigned from his office. He announced his resignation some minutes ago.
Mr Gidado informed the Governor of the state, Muhammed Abubakar of his decision to resign in a letter dated May 16.
In the letter, Mr Gidado explained that his decision was based on his commitment to serve for only a single term as deputy governor of the state.
“Ordinarily, I should have remained up to the end of the tenure, but, with the currently 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,” he wrote.
The deputy governor also believes that staying on in office will be unfair to the system and his conscience.
Furthermore, he reminded the governor that during their meeting on April 19th he had informed him that he was thinking about stepping aside.
