Sule stated that his resignation was borne out of sacrifice, patriotism, and desire for the state to move forward.

He said: “Certain things are happening and certain things are going on; some of us need to make things and decisions that will help us out of the quagmire. Nobody coarse me, it is my personal volition, sacrifices have to be made and I did this for stability and for Plateau State to move forward”.
