The Managing Director, Kano Road and Traffic Agency (KAROTA), Baffa Babba Danagundi, said he wished to resign, but Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje denied him the warrant.
Danagundi disclosed this in a chat with the Daily Trust on Monday.
He added that Ganduje, through the Acting Governor of the state, Nasiru Gawuna, refused to let him leave the job.
It was gathered that Gawuna rejected the resignation of Danagundi on the orders of the governor, who is currently in the United Arab Emirates.
Danagundi intended to resign to enable him to contest an elective position in the forthcoming election of 2023, as the Electoral Law requires.
Danagundi said, “it is true I tendered my resignation, but the governor rejected it. Hence, I have to take whatever he tells me.”
“The Governor has done a lot for me; he elevated me as Managing Director and did other things politically.
“Honestly, I will not go contrary to whatever decision the governor made on my resignation because he knows the best for me”, he said.
