THE Commissioner of Education in Bauchi State, Dr. Aliyu Usman Tilde, has resigned from his position in the Executive Council of Bauchi State.
This was disclosed by the Commissioner in a post made on his official Facebook page on Monday afternoon.
Dr Tilde also disclosed that before now, he had issued his resignation letter to the Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, asking for his consent for him (Dr Tilde) to respond to the distress call of an associate who is in need of his help.
In his post, he wrote:
And say: My Lord! Cause me to come in with a firm incoming and to go out with a firm outgoing. And give me from Thy presence a sustaining Power. (Al-Isra’, Ayah 80)
That was my prayer as I left my office last Thursday after writing a letter to His Excellency, the Governor of Bauchi State, to allow me attend to a call of an associate who direly needs my services.
Few minutes ago, Today, 5 December 2022, I received a letter from the Secretary to the Government conveying my release by His Excellency. In it the Secretary conveyed “the appreciation of the Executive Governor for your contribution to the Education Sector and wish you well in your future endeavour…”
With this my tenure as Commissioner of Education has come to an end. I am happy to see the peaceful ending of what have been very exacting but fruitful years and will ever remain grateful to God who stood by me until the last minute. It was natural that the above verse came to mind as I was taking a memorable snapshot of the office. (Inset) I pray that he will also be with me in my new assignment.”
He also expressed his gratitude to the citizens for supporting him during his time as the Commissioner of Education.
“I thank the entire people of Bauchi State for the cooperation they gave me and will ever remain grateful to the public servants with whom I have interacted over the 3 years and three months of my tenure. Of particular mention here are staff of the Ministry, the Zonal Offices and Schools; Teachers, PTAs, SBMCs, Development Partners, NGOs and volunteers.”
