Bauchi Deputy Governor resigns
Thu, 24 May 2018
The Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Engr. Nuhu Gidado, has resigned.
This was contained in a letter dated May 16 and which was addressed to the state governor, Mohammed A. Abubakar.
 
In the letter, the deputy governor explained that his decision was based on his commitment to serve for only a single term as deputy governor 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,” he stated in the letter.

Speaking on outcome of the meeting, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki said at the closed session, the security chiefs answered questions from senators on issues bordering on insurgency, terrorism, kidnapping and other security matters.
“On the whole, we decided that on our part, certain outstanding bills or protocols that needed to be fast-tracked, be addressed immediately to see that they are passed as soon as possible in order to strengthen the nation’s security architecture.

“Secondly, the Senate observed the issue of underfunding of security agencies and agreed that there is need for special funding for them to be able to carry out their mandates.

“Therefore, we gave the security chiefs two weeks to present their own budget on this area of special funding to the National Assembly which we think will go a long way in improving the security situation in the country,” he said.
He said the issue of coordination among the security agencies was also discussed. He said they have resolved to find ways to strengthen that aspect of security through constitutional means. 
“By and large, we all are committed to ensure that these unfortunate trends of killings are brought to the end. We all agreed to continue to work very closely in order to address these issues of insecurity and we are confident that things will improve in this area,” he said.
“We hope that over the next couple of weeks, we will begin to take action on some of these things for which we have made commitments,” he said.
