Bauchi State House of Assembly charged the state Commissioner for Education, Dr. Aliyu Tilde, with disrespect on Monday.

As a result, the lawmakers voted no confidence in him and withdrew his confirmation.

The house had already confirmed his candidacy as commissioner in response to a request from the state governor, Bala Mohammed.

The withdrawal of the confirmation followed the adoption of a motion during Monday’s plenary by the Chairman of the House Committee on Education, Babayo Mohammed, member representing Hardawa Constituency, under matters of urgent public importance.

Mohammed, the motion’s sponsor, called Tilde’s behavior during her defense last Friday “unfortunate and rude.”

He explained that, despite the fact that the commissioner arrived late for the session, he was accorded all courtesies, but he retaliated with unflattering remarks while addressing committee members.

Mohamed said, “While we were trying to explain ourselves to him, he interfered and enquired who we are. We told him we are legislature and another arm of government, but he kept asking who we are.
