Nuhu Gidado, the Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, has resigned from office. In a letter sent to the state governor, Muhammed Abubakar, 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.
He went on to remind the governor that during their meeting on April 19th, he had informed him that he was thinking about stepping aside.
He thanked the governor and the people of the state for the opportunity to serve as deputy governor of the state.
