The Chairman, Bauchi State Drugs and Medical Consumables Agency, Dayyabu Ciroma has rejected Federal Government’s appointment.
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had appointed Mr Ciroma as a member of the Governing Council of the Federal Polytechnic Shendam, Plateau State.
But in a letter dated April 12, and addressed to the minister, Mr Ciroma turned down the offer, citing loyalty to his principal, Governor Bala Mohammed as the reason.
Mr Ciroma added that his undiluted commitment to serve his immediate constituents in Bauchi State and to pay back the trust and confidence Mr Mohammed reposed in him forced him to turn down the offer.
“Be that as it may, while I was indeed appointed to give my best to the development of my dear country Nigeria, I must not hesitate to categorically informed you of my decision to decline the said appointment,” part of the letter read.
Mr Ciroma further cited his loyalty and dedication to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, as another layer of reasons on which he opted to stay put of his appointment as council member of the Governing Board of the polytechnic.
“My loyalty and dedication to my dear political party, the People’s Democratic party, PDP, and indeed my personal support and unwavering loyalty to the Executive Governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Abdulkadir who have since found me capable and worthy of serving as Chairman of Bauchi State’s Drugs and Medical Consumable Management Agency,” he said.
