Dr Aliyu Usman Tilde, Bauchi State Commissioner for Education, has resigned in a letter sent to Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed dated 1st December 2022.
Dr Tilde was appointed commissioner for education by the governor in 2019 and retained his position even after a cabinet reshuffling about a year ago.
In a Facebook post on his official Facebook account, the erudite educationist said his resignation was accepted by the governor in a letter conveyed to him dated 5th December 2022 by the Secretary to Bauchi State Government, Barrister Ibrahim Mohammed Kashim.
“A 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…'”
With this, my tenure as Commissioner of Education has come to an end. 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.
“It was natural that the above verse came to mind as I was taking a memorable snapshot of the office. (Inset) I pray that he will also be with me in my new assignment.
“I thank the entire people of Bauchi State for the cooperation they gave me and will ever remain grateful to the public servants with whom I have interacted over the 3 years and three months of my tenure. Of particular mention here are staff of the Ministry, the Zonal Offices and Schools; Teachers, PTAs, SBMCs, Development Partners, NGOs and volunteers,” he said.
