The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar on Scheduling, Tahir Ibrahim Tahir, has resigned. 

The aide announced his resignation in a letter addressed to the Secretary to the Bauchi State Government (SSG), Alhaji Bello Shehu Illelah, citing non-performance.  

The letter reads in part, “It is sad that after two years and more, the government has little or nothing to show. The administration has been rudderless and just seems to take on issues as they come without any clear blueprint, plan or manifesto with well laid out timeline to deliver campaign promises.”

He said people who did not work for the success of the government had taken positions and displaced the others who suffered for the success of the party.

In a reaction, however, the Press Secretary to the Governor, Abubakar Al-Sadique, said in a statement that the allegations were baseless.

“The attention of Bauchi State government has been drawn to a story trending on especially social media platforms… While we acknowledge the SSA’s right to decide which job to take or drop, we feel it is necessary to clarify that the reasons he advanced for his action were just a gimmick to justify his exit from the government,” he said, adding that despite the huge burden inherited by Governor Abubakar, “he was able to address most of the challenges and delivered on most of his campaign promises.”
