Barely two weeks after the resignation of Dr Aliyu Usman Tilde as Bauchi State Commissioner of Education, the ministry is yet to update its website as Tilde’s profile — picture and biography — remain as its commissioner.
Tilde, while announcing his resignation on his verified Facebook page, said he had sent a letter of resignation to Governor Bala Mohammed, seeking his approval to allow him to attend to a call of an associate who direly needs his services.
“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,” he said.
“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,” Tilde added. “It was natural that the above verse came to mind as I was taking a memorable snapshot of the office. I pray that he will also be with me in my new assignment.”
Nonetheless, the erstwhile commissioner’s biography and picture, remain on the ministry’s official website as the current boss piloting the ministry’s affairs.
Efforts to reach the ministry through the telephone number provided on the website were not successful as the phone number was not reachable. At press time, a text sent to the line had not been responded to.
