Bauchi commissioner resigns, accuses governor of hostility


The Bauchi State Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Alhaji Barau Ningi, has resigned his appointment.

Ningi, while tendering his resignation as commissioner and a member of the state executive council yesterday, accused Governor Abdullahi Mohammed Abubakar of adopting hostile, aggressive and intimidating posture to scare all and sundry from offering good, frank, sincere and honest advice to his administration.

He alleged that the governor was unaccommodating, debilitating and non-adviser friendly to all the commissioners.


Ningi stated: “This is why so many things in the administration are in the wrong direction. It appears you’re the governor prefers to listen to illiterates and sycophants.

“Your Excellency, this sycophancy is your creation. Everybody is now compelled to tell you what you want to hear. The executive council is a mere rubber stamp, ratifying anticipatory approvals only.”

He said good advisers were lacking in the administration, as the governor had adopted a negative and frightening posture.

“I am sure your Excellency cannot recall the number of times you shouted at me merely because I offered simple suggestion and pieces of advice and embarrassment I received,” he recalled.
