Recently sacked Borno State Commissioner for Home Affairs, Information and Culture, Mr. Inuwa says he saw his exit coming.
Governor Kashim Shettima on Friday announced the sack of Bwala alongside three other special assistants, including Makinta Zarami, Ali Umar and Ali Umar Bolori in his first minor cabinet reshuffle since assuming office 2011.
Bwala had served in that capacity during the tenure of former Governor Ali-Modu Sheriff.
A release issued by the ex-commissioner on Friday night, hours after his exit reads: “I am not surprised because I have been preparing for it long ago. I saw it coming and I thank God for everything, because it is part of my policy in public service to begin preparing for my exit the first day I take up appointment.
“Loyalty has a price, and those who have the culture of keeping loyalty must be prepared to pay the price. I am happy that today, I am paying the price for loyalty. I thank the governor for giving me the opportunity to serve in his government up to this moment.
“We are all members of the big APC family, and I am always ready to work in the interest of the party. I nurse no ill-feelings against him or anybody, because this will not alter my loyalty to our party. I thank God for keeping me in office this far and for seeing that it ended well, not on any negative note”, he said.
Bwala is said to be ‘very close’ to his former boss, Sheriff, who is purportedly not in good terms with the incumbent governor.
