Nuhu Gidado has resigned as the Deputy Governor of Bauchi state after losing interest in the job.
DENISAURUS News who first tweeted the breaking news at 10:51 on Wednesday night, learnt that Mr Gidado, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has a “dampened spirit and waning zeal as it relates to my official engagement.”
The APC recently held its ward congress across the 36 states, many of it was marred with violence, irregularities and protests.
For instance members in Enugu, Lagos, Imo, Adamawa, Oyo and even in Bauchi States, are calling for the cancellation of the votes, because they say the results are not accurate.
In Bauchi, Shehu Ningi, described the exercise as a “scandal,” saying that it success was “objectionable and condemnable.”
He noted that “members of APC and members of the general public in Bauchi are living witnesses to the fact that no Ward Congress took place at all throughout the state.”
Speaking on behalf of members under the axis of the APC Supporters Network, Alhaji Ningi wants a repeat of the ward congress.
He said: “In view of the fraud, we are therefore calling for the cancellation of the Ward Congress purported to have been carried out on Saturday 5th May 2018.
“We are also calling for a repeat of the ward congress, to be conducted by a different state election committee.
“Failure to listen to us will definitely jeopardize the hitherto brilliant chances of the party at the polls, come 2019 general elections.”
DENISAURUS News is unsure what faction Mr Gidado belongs in the APC in Bauchi and if the “condemnable” congress as any bearing on his resignation.
The Governor of the state, Mohammed Abubakar has confirmed that he received the resignation letter.
Governor Abubakar said: “On behalf of the people of @BauchiState, I 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’ll avail the state his service when called upon in the future.”
