The Sokoto the deputy governor of Sokoto State and the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC)Ahmed Aliyu, has resigned from his position.
Ahmed resigned yesterday, November 13th following his emergence as the APC governorship candidate in the 2019 election.
The resignation is long expected as he had fallen out politically since governor Aminu Tambuwal dumped APC for opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Tambuwal who was sure of clinching the presidential ticket of PDP failed in his bid and also could not secure the ticket for re-election in the state. Aminu lost the PDP presidential ticket to Atiku Abubakar at the party’s presidential primaries in Rivers state in October.
The deputy governor, is reported to have submitted a copy of his resignation letter to the state’s House of Assembly. The House decided to make it secret as it was not read on the floor during Tuesday’s plenary session.
