The Sokoto State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and deputy Governor of the State, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu has reportedly resigned.
Ahmed’s boss, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal is the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the 2019 elections.
Daily Trust reported that the deputy governor was not forced to resign.
Ahmed was said to have submitted a copy of his resignation letter to the state House of Assembly but it was not read at the floor of the House during last sitting.
“It is good that he resigned honourably because he would save himself from unforeseen humiliation and also save his relationship with the governor,” a source said.
