Gombe governor’s Special Adviser on Social Investment resigns

The Special Adviser to Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state on social investment, Mrs Dijatu Bappa has resigned her position.

Bappa in a resignation letter dated February 1st 2022 and addressed to the governor, explained that the resignation was with immediate effect.

She did not state the reason for her decision to abdicate her office, but simply told the governor in the letter that she had terminated her service.

The letter reads: She wrote, “I write to inform you of my decision to terminate my service as Special Adviser to his excellency, governor of Gombe State on Social Investment Programme with effect from 1st February 2022.

“Your excellency sir, I sincerely thank you for giving me this golden opportunity to serve under your able leadership. It is indeed a rare privilege for me to serve in that capacity.”

Though, it is not clear if the former aide resigned due to emerging squabble in the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), THEWILL, however reports that Bappa’s resignation came barely two days after a former commissioner for Health Dr Ahmed Gana quit the ruling APC and joined the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Information further gathered implies that Gombe business mogul and APC stalwart, Dr Jamil Gwamna also resigned from the party.

Gwamna was a governorship aspirant of the opposition PDP in 2019 general elections.

He defected in 2019 to APC with his supporters to pave way for Governor Inuwa Yahaya’s election.

Gwamna was also a strong stalwart who contested against former Governor Danjuma Goje in the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) in 2007.

In his letter of resignation addressed to Jekadafari ward APC Chairman, Dr Gwamna said his decision to resign from the APC was after wide consultations with his family, political associates and supporters.

The letter reads: “I write with all sense of humility and respect to notify you of my decision to resign from the ruling All Progressives Congress.

“I took the decision after wide consultations with my family, political associates and my supporters. I appreciate all the privileges I enjoyed in the party, while I was a member and I wish the party well.”

Confirming the resignation letter, Gwamna’s media consultant Dahiru Hassan Kera, said the letter was authentic.

Unlike Gana who has crossed to the PDP, Gwamna kept mute on his next political move although there are indications that he may be returning to the PDP.
