The Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Engr. Nuhu Gidado, has resigned.
This was contained in a letter dated May 16 and which was addressed to the state governor, Mohammed A. Abubakar.
In the letter, the deputy governor 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 stated in the letter.
Engr. Gidado also noted that staying on in office will be unfair to the state and his conscience. He thanked the people of the state and Governor Abubakar for giving him the rare opportunity of serving as his deputy.
