Less than 24 hours to re-run governorship polls, Garbi Akuyam, commissioner of finance in Bauchi state, has resigned, citing “political realities of present day” in Bauchi State.
In his resignation letter, Akuyam thanked Mohammed Abubakar, the governor, and the people of Bauchi for giving him the opportunity to serve.
“It is with pains, heavy hearts and deep concern that I write to tender my resignation as Hon. Commissioner of Finance and Member of the Bauchi State Executive Council with effect from Friday, 22nd March, 2019,” the letter read.
“I am compelled to resign my appointment, in view of the recent developments and political realities of present-day Bauchi State, as well as dictates of the moment, hence my resolve to honourably relinquish my position as Hon. Commissioner Ministry of Finance and Economic Development and that the decision is from my independent mind.”
Meanwhile, Naija News recalls that Bala Mohammed, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was leading Abubakar, who is seeking reelection before the March 9 election was declared inconclusive.
