The Deputy National Women Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Hajiya Hajara Yakubu Wanka has resigned from her position to serve as a commissioner in Bauchi State.
In her resignation letter, copies of which were made available to journalists in Bauchi, addressed to the Acting National Chairman of the party, Ambassador Iliya Damagun, Wanka said her resignation followed the opportunity given to her by the Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed to serve as commissioner.
In the letter, she expressed her profound gratitude to the national leadership of opposition PDP for the rare privilege given her to serve as Deputy National Women Leader of the party and to Governor Mohammed for finding her worthy to serve in his cabinet.
While asserting that the experience she gained while serving as the Deputy National Women Leader of the party cannot be quantified, Wanka stated that such experience would immensely enhance her performance as a commissioner in Bauchi State.
Wanka was among the 24 commissioner-nominees’ list sent to the State House of Assembly by Governor Mohammed and screened and confirmed by the House.
Meanwhile, the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) has accepted and congratulated Hajiya Wanka on her appointment as a commissioner in the Bauchi State Executive Council.
The National Publicity Secretary of the main opposition party, Debo Ologunagba, in a press statement released on Monday described Wanka’s appointment by Governor Mohammed as another testament to her selfless service, deep intellect, competence, administrative skills and patriotic roles towards the development of PDP, Bauchi State and the nation at large.
While extolling the technical competence of Hajiya Wanka, the National Working Committee said they were very proud to have experienced her sense of humility in service, commitment to duty and extraordinary capacity for leadership, especially in her role as the Deputy National Woman Leader and other assignments given to her by the Party.
The party then commended Governor Mohammed for the appointment, noting that such move reinforces his recognition of merit in choosing the best hands always to assist him in the administration of Bauchi State.
