Mr. Nuhu Gidado resigned as the deputy governor of Bauchi State on Monday.
Mr Gidado, in a letter dated 16, May Governor Muhammed Abubakar 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.
Gidado added that staying on in office will be unfair to the system and his conscience and that he had previously told the governor that during their meeting on April 19th he had informed him that he was thinking about stepping aside.
He however expressed his appreciation to Governor Abubakar and the people of the state for the opportunity to serve as deputy governor of the state.
