Ahmed tendered his resignation letter to the state House of Assembly on Tuesday but it was not read on the floor.
Sokoto State deputy governor, Ahmed Aliyu, has reportedly resigned from his position.
Daily Trust reports that Ahmed tendered his resignation letter to the state House of Assembly on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 but it was not read on the floor during the day's sitting.
Ahmed is the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2019 Sokoto governorship election. He failed to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with state governor, Aminu Tambuwal, who dumped the party in August.
While there's a possibility that he'll have to face Tambuwal at the polls next year, a source disclosed that Ahmed did not resign because he was having problems with the governor.
