The Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Nuhu Gidado has resigned. His resignation was announced late Wednesday.

A source confirmed this to Channels Television. His decision was stated in a letter to Mohammed Abubakar, 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.

Mr Gidado thanked Governor Abubakar and the people of the state for the opportunity to serve as deputy governor of the state.

It was gathered that Gidado in the letter said though he wished to complete his tenure, he had lost interest in the job.
