Commissioner for Commerce and Industry in Bauchi State, Mohammed Alhassan Sadiq, has resigned his appointment.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, he hailed his boss, former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, for his “usual support” and “influencing” his appointment as commissioner.
According to Sadiq, he tendered his letter of resignation on Wednesday.
“Alhamdulillah, Ma sha Allah, every beginning has an end. Today, the 19th day of August 2020, I have honourably tendered my voluntary resignation as a Commissioner (Ministry of Commerce & Industries) and a Member of the State Executive Council in the Government of Bauchi State,” he wrote.
“It was a rare privilege and opportunity to have served my state in such an exalted position. I thank H.E the Executive Governor – Sen. Bala A. Mohammed (Kauran Bauchi) for the wonderful opportunity accorded to me.
“In the same vein, I must appreciate my boss, H.E, the Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara for his usual support and the role he played in influencing same [his appointment].
“I sincerely thank all my colleagues in the EXCO and the Ministry, whom we have worked with as a formidable team. I have enjoyed the Understanding of my family at such a trying time.
“I beseech God to forgive all my wrongs and the general public/colleagues to pardon me.
“I urge you to help me, pray God to grant me success, contentment, and peace of mind in my new endeavor. Thank you all and remain blessed.”
Recall that Dogara recently defected from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and returned to his former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
