Two hundred and fifty-two Special Advisers and Special Assistants appointed under Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s administration have resigned their positions.
The affected aides said their resignations were informed by the recent decision of the Sokoto State Governor to dump the All Progressives Congress, the party which they are bona fide members of in the state.
They stated that their resolve to remain in APC will not allow them to function in their respective positions under Tambuwal’s government.
Addressing journalists on Sunday in Sokoto, the spokesman of the SAs, Dasuki Haske, also said their decisions were hinged on their loyalty to the party.
Haske said they were APC members before their appointments as SAs and it was based on their membership values that they were given such positions.
