Commissioner Abandons Bauchi Governor Hours To Supplementary Election
Garbi Akuyam, Commissioner of Finance in Bauchi State, has resigned
He cited “political realities of present day” in Bauchi as his reason for resignation.
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.”
The development comes less than 24 hours to the supplementary governorship election.
Bala Mohammed, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was leading Abubakar, who is seeking reelection before the March 9 election was declared inconclusive.
