The Special Adviser to Bauchi State Governor on Investment, Alhaji Samaila Sanusi, said on Wednesday that he had resigned his appointment due to “unfriendly working environment.”

Sanusi, who announced his resignation in Bauchi while briefing newsmen, said he had submitted his letter to the governor, through the office of Secretary to State Government.

“I planned to resign since the day you challenged us to continue being in service or quit at the beginning of the executive council meeting, held on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017.

“After several consultations with my supporters, I felt it was time for me to go.

“As you are aware, our government came into being through popular votes of the overwhelming majority of the good people of Bauchi State.

“There is very high expectation of dividends of democracy from us by the electorate, this calls for deployment of wealth of knowledge and professional experience into play towards meeting the legitimate yearnings and aspiration of our people,” he wrote in his letter.

He said all avenues to hold talks with the state governor on official issues and development, proved abortive.

He however thanked the governor for giving him the opportunity to serve in the present administration.

Efforts by NAN to reach the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Communication, Alhaji Sabo Mohammed, through telephone, for his comment, was futile as he did not pick the call.

On his side, Press Secretary to the Governor, Malam Abubakar Sufi, when contacted for comments, told NAN that he was not aware of the development.

He however said that political appointments had been spread to ensure equal representation as part of dividends of democracy.

The Special Adviser on Investment was appointed on Feb. 15, 2016.

He was the second high-ranking aide of the governor to resign, in the last few months.

In December 2016, the Commissioner of Budget and Planning, Shehu Ningi, also resigned.

Mr. Ningi stepped down a day after Governor Mohammed Abubakar presented the 2017 budget estimates to the state’s House of Assembly.

The former commissioner said he decided to resign because the governor did not encourage members of his cabinet to offer advice on how to run the state.

Mr. Ningi, in his resignation letter to the governor, explained that the environment in which he could exercise his advisory role as member of the State Executive Council had been “unaccommodating, debilitating and non-adviser friendly.” (NAN)
