Kano State Deputy Governor, Prof. Hafiz Abubakar, on Sunday resigned from office, having been elected on the platform of the ruling, All Progressives Congress, APC.
Abubakar resigned his position following hints that 31 members of the state House of Assembly had already signed his impeachment notice, scheduled to be tabled before the House on Monday for deliberations.
It should be recalled that Abubakar has been at loggerheads with his boss over some differences bordering on loyalty between the Gandujiyya and Kwankwasiyya groups.
In a letter dated August 1, 2018, addressed to Kano State Governor Abduallahi Umar Ganduje, Abubakar said, “I would have desired to remain up to the end of our tenure in order to fulfill the aspirations and expectations of the good people of Kano State as expressed in our joint ticket in 2015.
”But with the current and persistent irreconcilable differences on matters relating to governance and government operations, personal opinions and the concept of, and respect for democratic ideals and values, it would be unfair to my conscience, to the good people of Kano State and to you as the head of the Government to continue to remain in my position as the Deputy Governor.”
Abubakar will join his political godfather, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party from the ruling APC.
Abubakar has been under pressure from the governor’s loyalists to resign or face impeachment.
