The Deputy Governor of Kano State, Professor Hafiz Abubakar, has resigned his position as deputy Governor of state.

The immediate past Deputy Governor who was elected on the platform of the governing party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) tendered his resignation Sunday afternoon.

The reason for the resignation according to the deputy governor was because of irreconcilable differences in matters of governance of the state.

Hafiz, in a letter, dated August 1, 2018 but made available to newsmen on Sunday, addressed to the Governor, Dr Abduallahi Umar Ganduje, said;“I would 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 their 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  you, as the head of the Government to continue to remain in my position as the Deputy Governor,” stated Hafiz in the letter.

However, information is rife that the immediate past Deputy Governor, resigned from his position, following  hints that 31 members of the state House of Assembly, signed his impeachment notice, which would be tabled before the house tomorrow (Monday).

Hafiz resigned his position and will join his political godfather, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the ruling APC.

Only four days ago, the deputy governor personally refuted speculations that he had defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
