The Deputy Governor of Sokoto State, Ahmed Sokoto, has resigned.
Although he was said to have submitted his letter of resignation to the State House of Assembly, the letter was not read at plenary.
His action, it was gathered, followed alleged moves to impeach him.
Sokoto is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress candidate for the 2019 election.
He is therefore likely to vie for the governorship position with Governor Aminu Tambuwal who is now in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
It would be recalled that Tambuwal defected from the APC to the PDP months back.
He vied for the presidential ticket of the PDP at the convention held in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, but lost.
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, won the party’s presidential ticket.
48 years Sokoto was at a time the Commissioner for Health in the state.
