According to Channels Television, the Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Nuhu Gidado, has resigned, citing waning enthusiasm for the job as reason for quitting.
Gidado’s exit makes the third high-ranking official to leave Governor Abubakar’s cabinet.
First to leave was the Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Shehu Ningi, who resigned in December, a day after Governor Abubakar presented the 2017 budget estimates to the state’s House of Assembly.
He said the governor was not willing to seek advice on how to run the state.
Ningi described working with the governor as “unaccommodating, debilitating and non-adviser friendly.”
The second high profile to leave was the Special Adviser on Investment, Samaila Sanusi, who cited “unfriendly working environment”.
