The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the resignation of Nuhu Gidado as the Deputy Governor of Bauchi state.
Governor Mohammed Abubakar reacted to the development on Thursday.
The state chapter of the APC, said although Gidado’s resignation had not been formally brought to the notice of the party, it was wishing the former deputy governor, all the best in his political endeavour.
“We have nothing to say for now because the resignation was not brought to the notice of the party secretariat.
“The party is the mother of all its members; we are wishing him the best in his endeavour,” said the party, through its Publicity Secretary, Adamu Jalla
But State Secretary of Green Party of Nigeria, GPN, Salisu Barau, said the resignation was ‘long overdue’.
He explained that there were clear indications since last year that Gidado might ‘throw in the towel’ because of his dissatisfaction with affairs.
“Nuhu Gidado is an icon in the politics of the state; we gathered he had not been allowed to operate freely.
“The deputy governor has done the right thing by resigning at this material time; our doors are open at the party level, we will welcome him to join GPN,” Mr Barau said.
Meanwhile, Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Kabiru Lemmy, said the development would not have any negative impact on the progress of the state.
“Governance is a continuous process; if one person leaves, another person will continue with the programmes on the ground.
“There is nothing wrong in his resignation because it is a normal happening to be appointed, dropped or resign.
“But I must confess that we will miss him (Gidado) because he is a person with repute and is highly respected,” said Mr Lemmy.
