The Borno Commissioner for Poverty Alleviation,Nuhu Clark, has resigned from office to contest Chibok State Constituency election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress.
Mr Clark in an interview in Maiduguri on Monday said that his decision was to ensure quality representation for the people of Chibok.
Mr Clark who served as the elected Chairman of Chibok Local Government in 1999, said he was still connected to his people and that his project remained the people’s project.
He lauded Governor Babagana Zulum for giving him the opportunity to serve as a commissioner, adding that his experience as former council chairman, state youth leader and adviser would be brought to bear when he emerges a lawmaker.
It would be recalled that another commissioner who resigned is Bukar Talba in the Ministry of Agriculture.
Mr Talba is aspiring to contest Nganzai/Monguno/Marte Federal Constituency on the platform of APC.
There are also unconfirmed reports that more than 10 Special Advisers to the governor have tendered their resignations so as to seek elective positions.
