Governor Aminu Tambuwal Shocks APC, Set To Tenders Resignation Letter Ahead Of 2019, Gives Deadly Condition

It was shocking as the Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has vowed to tender his resignation letter as the Executive Governor of the State, ahead of 2019.

Tambuwal who was speaking during an interactive session with the media, as part of activities marking his two years in office, maintained that he is ready to sacrifice his second term bid, if it means the on-going verification exercise at the State and Local Government levels, would continue.

He made it clear that he owed nobody apology over the exercise, because “we believe we are doing the right thing.”

The Governor, further reiterated his administration’s commitment to remove all ghost workers from its payrolls.

He said: “There have been hues and cries over the verification exercise, with some people saying we are denying them their salaries. But all these campaigns of calamity would not make us to back down, even if it will cost me my second term bid, because I believe we are doing the right things.

“Before the exercise, things were going wrongly at the Local Government levels; there were a lot of fraud and atrocities being committed there. Take for instance, somebody from Zamfara State bought 270 offers from Tureta Local Governments, and was getting their salaries. When this was discovered and they were removed, he sent a text message to the SSG, threatening legal action. Another example is Binji Local Government, which had not been getting N10 million as its monthly allocation, but its salary is N30 million.”

He added: “Before we brought primary health workers under one roof, we were paying the salary of over 12,000 people, but now we discovered they were not up to 9,000.”

Who do you want as Nigeria's 2019 President???
