The Governor has accepted the resignation of Hon. Mohammed Al. Hassan Sadiq and wished him success in his future endeavours.

Recall it was reported that Mohammed A. Sadiq had on 19th of August, 2020 tendered his resignation letter to Governor during State executive council meeting,  where the letter reads thus:

“Alhamdullah, Masha Allah

Every beginning has an end.

Today, the 19th day of August, 2020, I have honourably tendered my voluntary resignation as a Commissioner (Ministry of Commerce & Industries) and a Member of the State Executive Council in the Government of Bauchi State.

It was a rare privilege and opportunity to have served my state in such an exalted position.

I thank H.E the Executive Governor – Sen. Bala A. Mohammed (Kauran Bauchi)for the wonderful opportunity accorded to me. In the same vein, I must appreciate my boss H.E, the Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara for his usual support and the role he played in influencing same.

I sincerely thank all my colleagues in the EXCO and the Ministry, whom we have worked with as a formidable team.

I have enjoyed the Understanding of my family at such a trying time.

I beseech God to forgive all my wrongs and the general public/colleagues to pardon me.

I urge you to help me, pray God to grant me success, contentment and peace of mind in my new endeavour.

Thank you all and remain blessed”

He later announced same on his Facebook page, late Wednesday night.

Mr. Alhassan Sadiq was appointed a Commissioner from Dass Local Government Area, which is one of the LGAs in the Tafawa Balewa/Dass/Bogoro Federal Constituency which the former Speaker of House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara represents.

Those familiar with his political journey said Mr. Sadiq had enjoyed the backing of Mr Dogara in getting political appointments and elections including membership of the Bauchi State House of Assembly, Chairman of Dass LGA as well as a legislative aide and his last appointment a Commissioner.

Therefore, one shouldn’t be surprised if the sudden resignation of the Commissioner was influenced by his boss, Dogara as stated in the letter. Yakuba Dogara has been inconsistent in his party membership. He changes from one political party to the other in order to remain in power.

An exploration into his political annals revealed that in 2014, the former Speaker alongside other rebellious members of PDP which was tagged the ‘New PDP’ defected to APC as the 2015 election approaches. After making it to the National House of Representatives under the platform of the APC, Yakubu Dogara together with people like the former President of the Senate,  Abubakar Bukola Saraki revolted against the leadership of the APC,  consequently, took over the leadership of the legislative chambers with the support of the PDP legislators.

As soon as Dogara emerged as the Speaker,  his relationship with then-incumbent governor of Bauchi State Muhammad Abdullahi Abubakar became bitter. With the increase of feud, the Speaker could see himself losing the 2019 ticket, considering the fact that the APC State Chairman is a loyalist of the Gov. Muhammad Abubakar.  Dogora exhibited his chameleonic ability by returning to the PDP on 20th September,  2018 pending the 2019 polls. After being reelected as a member representing Dass, Tafawa Balewa,  Bogoro Federal constituency of Bauchi state, he stayed in the party for some time and eventually tossed to his former party-APC.

As the saying goes “Birds of the same feather flock together”.

This resignation should not deter Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed from continuing with his good works, as the people of Bauchi State are the judges,  and they will judge when the time comes.
