Kano State governor, Abdulahi Ganduje has said his former deputy, Prof. Hafiz Abubakar, was lucky to have resigned his position when he did.
The governor revealed that Abubakar would have been impeached by the state House of Assembly if not for his intervention.
The governor stated this in his letter to Abubakar, in which he responded to his former deputy’s resignation letter.
Dated 6th of August, Ganduje said he would have just simply accepted the former university teacher’s resignation letter, but for the issues he raised in his letter.

Denying dissecting the deputy governor’s office, Ganduje said in the three years they worked together, he never disrected him, as he was always acting on his behalf whenever he had reason to be away.
The letter reads in part: “You might have been aware that the House of Assembly had gathered enough signatures and impeachable offenses against you and wanted to commence impeachment proceeding against you today, Monday 6th of August, 2018, but with your resignation letter in the 4th of August (a Saturday), I have already appealed to them to drop it and they have obliged.”
The governor however wished his former deputy best of luck as he returns to the university environment, where, according to him, he performs better.
