The Deputy Governor of Kano State, Professor Hafiz Abubakar, has resigned from office.
It was gathered that Abubakar resigned from his position on Sunday when he got information that 31 members of the state House of Assembly had signed his impeachment notice which will be tabled before the Assembly Monday.
Hafiz is a loyalist of Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speculations were rife in Kano last Wednesday that the deputy governor, who is a Professor in Nutrition, had threw in the towel. He however did nied the rumour.
Abubakar has been under pressure from the governor’s loyalists to resign or face impeachment.
