Bauchi Governor Mohammed Abubakar, has offered up an explanation for why his Deputy, Alhaji Nuhu Gadado, and other key members of his cabinet resigned from office.

Gadado’s resignation brings to four the number of people who have resigned from Abubakar’s cabinet.

The governor said the boat is not sinking but can’t say if more cabinet members will leave him hanging. “I don’t know, he said.

“What transpired is in the letter of the deputy and I think people should read that letter. Read the entire letter and you will see that there was nothing bad that transpired between us, the governor said Friday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

” His final paragraph he said that he remains loyal to his leader and his brother. In my response I eulogized him and wished him the best in his future endeavour and assured him of the support of the good people of Bauchi State. There was no problem whatsoever.”

On why he found it easy to accept Gidado’s resignation, he said, “The word resignation connotes a will on the part of the person who has offered. He offered his letter willingly and there is no way you can force him to accept an employment when the time has come for him to look else where.”

Asked why people were leaving his government Abubakar said, “Because, I have come to Bauchi State to engender change and change is very very difficult for people to accept. People are used to a certain way of doing business and I have come to change that way of doing business. Because, that way was destroying Bauchi State. So, we had to put a stop to it, we had to bring Bauchi state out of the dungeon. I give people a chance and if you think you can go at my pace you stay and if you can’t go at my pace you resign.”

On the working relationship between them before the resignation, the governor said, “We had the most fantastic working relationship. In his words and you can ask him, he has said several times that he is the most pampered deputy governor in Nigeria.”

When reminded that the spokesman to the deputy governor said on television that he resigned because he was not being treated as part of the government, the governor said, “I see. I think he is wrong. Go to the House of Assembly and check, I went on official leave twice since I took over and each time I transmitted a letter to the House of Assembly making him the acting governor of Bauchi. Moreover, I gave him the most important ministry, ministry of education where I have been allocating the largest share of the budget of Bauchi state from the time I took over till date. That should answer your question.”
