Abdullahi Danbaba, the Special Assistant on non-governmental affairs to Gov. Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara has resigned his appointment.
Danbaba announced his resignation in a letter obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin on Sunday, which was addressed to Gov. Ahmed through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG).
According to him, the decision to resign the appointment was due to extensive and heart-to-heart consultation with the people of his constituency, coupled with the issue created by the recent political re-alignment in the state and the country at large.
He, however, expressed gratitude to the governor and President of the Senate Bukola Saraki for the opportunity offered him to serve the people of Kwara.
Speaking with NAN, Danbaba said his decision was borne out of the recent political re-alignment that saw Bukola Saraki-led political leadership in the state defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the People Democratic Party (PDP)
“As a result of that political development, the people of my constituency in Kaiama local government felt they would not go with Saraki any longer because they have suffered protractedly lack of infrastructure development.
And as a result, they would not toe the path of Saraki and I have consulted widely with my people and in view of the fact that the community suffered for a long period of time, I should also disengage from this government and come home and join the people’s party; that is the APC”, he said.
