Ganduje’s commissioner resigns, may contest for governor under PDP


THE Kano State Commissioner for Water Resources, Alhaji Sadiq Wali, has resigned his appointment

Alhaji Wali is the son of former Ambassador Aminu Wali, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). A source who preferred anonymity said the younger Wali may have resigned to contest the governorship election on the platform of PDP.

It will be recalled that in the 2019 general election, he contested the governorship primary election, but lost the bid to fly the PDP flag.

His resignation letter, submitted to the state government, reads: “I am greatly honoured to have been called to serve in the administration of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and the good people of Kano State as a commissioner and member of the State Executive Council for the last two years.”

He however disclosed that “Today, I have decided to pursue other opportunities in my political career and wish to announce my resignation as Commissioner for Water Resources effective Thursday, March 31, 2022.”

According to him, “The administration has worked tirelessly to enhance and grow the water sector to meet up with ever-increasing challenges ranging from adequate and sustainable water supply as in the AFD initiative to better management of water resources and better utilisation of irrigation assets.

“I give His Excellency the assurance of my unflinching loyalty and support in all other present or future endeavours you might deem fit to call on me to assist.

It has been a really fulfilling experience to have had this rare opportunity to serve under your inspiring leadership full of knowledge and lessons to learn.

“I wish His Excellency a successful completion of his tenure.”

Meanwhile, the Kano State Acting Governor, Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna has accepted the voluntary resignation of the commissioner.

In a statement issued by the commissioner for information, Malam Muhammad Garba, the acting governor commended the outgoing commissioner for his service to the government and people of Kano State.

He noted with satisfaction the achievements recorded in the ministry despite the challenges in the area of water supply to the ever-increasing population, particularly in the state capital.

The acting governor expressed profound appreciation to the outgoing commissioner and wished him the best of luck in his future endeavour.
