LAGOS NOVEMBER 14TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The deputy Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu has allegedly resigned.

Daily Trust reports that the deputy Governor was not forced to resign.
According to a source, Ahmed resigned voluntarily and “we will not hesitate to accept his resignation.”
Ahmed was said to have submitted a copy of his resignation to the state House of Assembly but it was not read at the floor of the House during Tuesday’s sitting.
