The Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Engr. Nuhu Gidado has resigned his appointment.
Gidado reportedly conveyed his decision to resign from his position through a letter dated May 16.
In the letter, which became public yesterday, Gidado told Governor Mohammed Abubakar that: “Indeed, along the way in the early days of our this administration, I did reiterate my commitment to serve for a single term and, 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, the system we are serving and, above all, to my conscience before the Almighty Allah.
“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.
“Despite all sir, 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.”
