He thanked the Nigerian leader for the opportunity to serve in his cabinet and contribute his quota to the development of the nation.

Read the statement released by Mamman below:

With a deep sense of humility and submission to the will of Almighty Allah, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR for granting me the opportunity to serve in his administration and contribute my quota to our beloved Nation Nigeria.

I am grateful for the confidence, belief, and trust he placed in me and most especially the support he gave me during my tenure at the Power House and his leadership direction.

I remain committed to his agenda for our great Nation and shall continue to support him in any way possible.

I am also grateful to His Excellency the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, and his leadership of the Power Sector Supervisory Working Group.

To my Colleagues at the Federal Executive Council, my sincere appreciation for the coordinated and Productive Working relationships we had, and also the personal relationships forged.

My sincere gratitude also goes out to everyone at the Federal Ministry of Power and its supervising agencies, without your tremendous and selfless efforts, we couldn’t have recorded the giant strides we achieved in the past two years.

To my Personal Aides, thank you all for your dedication, loyalty, and selflessness.

To our great Party the All Progressive Congress, thank you for the platform that has given Nigerians progressive leadership.

Most of all to the people of my great State Taraba and my fellow Nigerians, I am grateful for the opportunity to serve.

God bless Nigeria
