Bauchi: Commissioner resigns after father loses traditional title

The Commissioner of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprise Development, Sa’adatu Bello Kirfi, resigned her position just hours after her father was stripped of his traditional title as Wazirin Bauchi and removed as a Bauchi Emirate Council member.

The PUNCH previously reported that Kirfi, a retired federal civil servant, Second Republic Minister, and former Minister of Special Duties, was stripped of his traditional title and removed from office as a Senior Member of the Bauchi Emirate Council for the second time in five years.

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

His removal was conveyed in a letter addressed to him by the Secretary of the Bauchi Emirate Council, Alh. Shehu Mudi Muhammad, dated January 3rd, 2023 with reference No: BEC/ADM/20/VOL.XV and titled: “Removal from office as a Council Member and Traditional Title of Wazirin Bauchi.”

In her letter of resignation, Sa’adatu wrote: “Your Excellency, I wish to humbly tender my resignation as a member, 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.”
