Nuhu Gidado, the Bauchi State deputy governor, has resigned from his position as number 2 person in the state.

Gidado tendered his resignation letter Governor Mohammed Abubakar on Thursday, May 24, 2018.

In the letter, Gidado said he had lost interest in being the deputy governor.

He said though he wished to complete his tenure, but that he had to resign.

“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,” his letter to the governor read in part.

The deputy governor also believes that staying on in office will be unfair to the system and his conscience.

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