It is no longer news that Bauchi State Deputy Governor, Engr. Nuhu Gidado has resigned from his exalted office.
In a resignation letter tendered by Nuhu, dated May 16, 2018 to Governor Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State, it reads… “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.”
Sources at the Bauchi State Government House have it that Mr. Gidado had fallen out big time with his superior, Governor Abubakar.
However, in a statement signed by Ali M. Ali, Special Adviser to Governor Abubakar on Media and Strategy, he said… “The Executive Governor of Bauchi State Mohammed A. Abubakar has accepted the resignation of Engr. Nuhu Gidado as Deputy Governor and wish him well in his future endeavours.”
“The governor particularly commended the former No 2 citizen of the State for the remarkable manner of his resignation. He expressed optimism that he will avail his vast wealth of experience to the State any time he is called upon in the future.”
“We received the resignation of our Deputy Governor, Engr. Nuhu Gidado. On behalf of the people of Bauchi state, I want to thank him for his meritorious service while in office. He remains vital to our administration and party.”
“I wish him well in his future endeavours, and he can count on me for support. I am also optimistic he will avail the State his service when called upon in the future.”
