Mass resignation has hit the cabinet of Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, as his chief of staff, Ali Makoda, on Monday joined at least 9 other commissioners to resign.

With this mass exodus, which makes the state executive council lose quorum, there are fears that the governor may not be able to convoke council meeting until he fills up the vacuum.

DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that most of the commissioners tendered their resignation on Sunday, following Mr Ganduje’s 48-hour ultimatum that all political appointees willing to contest for elections should resign before or on Monday.

Among the commissioners who tendered their resignations so far is the commissioner of Water Resources, Sadiq Wali, who resigned weeks before the governor’s ultimatum to contest for governorship on the platform of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
