PDP Deputy National Woman Leader resigns, accepts new State appointment

The Deputy National Woman Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, Hajara Wanka, has resigned from her position.

Wanka made this known on Tuesday in her resignation letter addressed to the acting National Chairman of the party, Umar Damagum.

Waka said she was quitting her role in the running of the PDP at the national level to serve as commissioner in Bauchi State following her nomination by Governor Bala Mohammed.

She thanked the Damagum-led National Working Committee for the privilege given to her to serve and also expressed appreciation to the governor for finding her worthy to serve in his government.

The experience garnered over the past few years working for the party, she added, would guide her in her new role in Bauchi State.

Spokesman for the PDP, Debo Ologunagba, had earlier congratulated Wanka for her appointment and wished her well in her new job.

“Our party is especially delighted by the outstanding achievements of Governor Bala Mohammed as demonstrated in the array of legacy human capital and infrastructural projects with which he has transformed Bauchi State into an oasis of development in line with the manifesto and policy thrust of the PDP

“The PDP congratulates our Deputy National Woman Leader for being found worthy to serve under an exceptionally brilliant, resourceful, and thorough administrator, Governor Bala Mohammed, and charges her to bring to bear her experience and capacity in this new assignment”, Ologunagba said on behalf of the NWC.
