Commissioner resigns in protest of stripping her father of Wazirin Bauchi title


By Nasir Isa

The Commissioner of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Development, Sa’adatu Bello Kirfi, has resigned.

She tendered her resignation few hours after her father was stripped of his traditional title as Wazirin Bauchi and removed as a Bauchi Emirate Council member.

He was removed over his alleged “disloyalty and disrespect” to the State Governor, Bala Mohammed.

Her resignation was contained in a terse letter addressed to the Governor through the Secretary to the State Government, dated January 4, 2023 and titled “Letter of Resignation.”

“Your Excellency, I wish to humbly tender my resignation as a member of, Bauchi State Executive Council and Hon. Commissioner Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs Development, Bauchi State with immediate effect.

“I wish to thank His Excellency the Executive Governor for giving me the opportunity to serve my State under your Administration,” she wrote in the letter.
