Following the removal of her father, Alhaji Muhammadu Bello Kirfi, as the Wazirin Bauchi and Council member of Bauchi Emirate, the state’s Commissioner for Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises, Hon Sa’adatu Bello Kirfi, has resigned her appointment.
The commissioner tendered her resignation less than 24 hours after her father’s sack by the state government.
The former title holder, Kirfi was removed for allegedly disrespecting Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed.
But his daughter, the former Commissioner, in the letter addressed to Governor Mohammed through the Secretary to the State Government, thanked him for considering her worthy to serve.
Saadatu’s letter read, “Your Excellency, I wish to humbly tender my resignation as 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 mu State under your Administration.”
In 2017, Emir of Bauchi, Dr Rilwanu Suleiman Adamu, first suspended Kirfi as the Wazirin Bauchi. But he was subsequently reinstated by Governor Mohammed who presented the letter of reinstatement at Kirfi’s residence in Bauchi on August 5, 2022.
Kirfi served as Minister of State Foreign Affairs under President Shehu Shagari and also Minister of Special Duties during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
