”Reports on my purported resignation is not only fake, but also the figment of imagination of the writer.
“For the avoidance of doubt, I assure the peace loving and hard-working people of Bauchi State, in particular and the nation in general, that I have not resigned as the Deputy Governor of Bauchi State.
“I reiterate my support and loyalty to Gov. Bala Mohammed. Rumour mongers who are bent on causing disharmony in the state are warned to desist from such acts,” he said.
Tela said he remained committed to the objectives and ideals of the state administration under the leadership of Gov. Mohammed.
