Nuhu Gidado, deputy governor of Bauchi state, tendered his resignation on Wednesday.

In a letter to Mohammed Abubakar, governor of the state, Gidado said though he wished to complete his tenure, he lost interest in the job along the line.

Describing Abubakar as “my brother and leader”, Gidado thanked the governor for giving him the opportunity to serve.

He also extended appreciation to the people 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,” the letter read.

Back in 2015 when he was sworn in, he took a 50 percent pay cut with the governor.

He had promised that youth restiveness would be given priority within the first 100 days of the administration.

“There is no two ways about it, we will go into the issue of youth restiveness from day one. We have that as a priority and have mapped out our plans and what we want to achieve,” he had said.

One of the highlights of his time in power was presiding over the state when Abubakar went for medical check-up in Saudi Arabia for 17 days.
