Kwara State Commissioner for Special Duties, Aisha Ahman Pategi, has resigned her appointment from Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq cabinet.
In a letter by the outgoing commissioner on Friday, she said, “now is the time for me to leave and focus on new ideals.”
It is recalled that a special adviser to the governor on Health Matters, Professor Wale Sulaiman, also resigned his appointment, “to pursue his long-time passion of maximizing his contacts in the global health and non-health sectors,” a few weeks ago.
Hajia Pategi, who started as commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in the beginning of the present administration, was later redeployed as Special Duties commissioner during alleged N300 million LG diversion saga in the state.
The letter reads:
“I, Aisha Ahman Pategi, the outgoing Hon. Commissioner for Special Duties, effective from today, Friday 28th August 2020, humbly wish to formally announce my resignation from the cabinet of His Excellency, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.
I wish to thank God Almighty for giving me the grace and opportunity to serve as Commissioner for Local Government and now exiting as Commissioner for Special Duties, serving my fellow Kwarans and representing Pategi Local Government in our drive to better the lot of Kwarans.
Life is in phases and I’m bold to say that having journeyed the political terrain with His Excellency, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, now is the time for me to leave and focus on new ideals.
Going forward, my interest in Community Service and Grassroots’ Development will continue.
Once again, I would like to thank Almighty Allah, the People of Patigi, Kwarans, our dear party APC and most of all, His Excellency for bringing me into politics. May Allah reward him and continue to be his guide as he pilots the affairs of our dear state.
