Kano State Deputy Governor Resigns

The deputy governor of Kano State, Hafiz Abubakar has tendered his resignation amidst crisis with the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

This is coming as many have speculated that he will be leaving the ruling APC to the opposition PDP as the relationship with him and the Governor deteriorates.

Details of his resignation letter;
“I regret to write and notify you of my decision to resign my position as deputy governor of Kano State with effect from Saturday 4th August, 2018.

“Your Excellency, I would have desired to remain up to the end of our tenure in order to fulfill the aspirations and expectations of the good people of Kano State as expressed in their mandate given to our joint ticket in 2015, but with the current and persistent irreconcilable differences on matters relating to governance and government operations, personal opinions, and the concept of, and respect for, democratic ideals and values, it would be unfair to my conscience, to the good people of Kano State and to you as the head of the government to continue to remain in my position as the Deputy Governor of Kano State.

“Your Excellency would recall several instances I had to draw your attention to the need to understand and appreciate these differences in order to avoid drifting into the kind of unnecessary crisis we are facing today, but to no avail,” the letter read in part.

Recall that on July 30, Mr Abubakar petitioned the police and State Security Service, SSS, over threat to his life and plans by the state government to stage rally against him.

Mr Abubakar, a loyalist of former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, has been at loggerheads with the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, for siding with Mr Kwankwaso in the political impasse in the state.
