May 4, 2012 (KHARTOUM) – The governor of Gedaref state Karamallah Abbas has submitted his resignation to president Omer Hassan al-Bashir who accepted it, Sudan state media reported.

Because Abbas disbanded his cabinet Bashir appointed Al-Saw Mohamed al-Mahi as an acting governor until new elections can be held, the report said.

Abbas could not be immediately reached for comment.

This week, the governor dissolved his state government upon returning from Khartoum where he reportedly clashed with federal finance minister Ali Mahmood Abdel-Rasool over financial disbursements in arrears not paid to the state government.

Abbas lashed out at the finance minister saying the latter has more powers than the presidency. He warned that that the central government is now on the verge of collapse because it now became a one-man show.

He vowed not to resign and said Bashir can’t force him out because he is an elected official. It is not clear what prompted the change of heart.

The ruling National Congress Party (NCP) dispatched a delegation to meet the governor and it was reported that he was given the choices of either to resign, be sacked or for him to reverse his decision to dissolve the state cabinet.

The delegation returned to Khartoum and immediately convened a meeting with NCP organisational bureau which continued late into the night.

    Bravo Abbas for your resignation, Bashir’s gov’t is the most corrupted one as you said it ’’the central gov’t is now on the verge of collapse because it is became a one -man show’’.

      Bravo to the governor. Patriotism is an alligience to the nation and not to the party of Mosquitos. You have a dignity and integrity to keep. But Beshit, the mosquito is already disliked by AU that once supported him. He is a fugitive and a criminal.

      This governor is really serious. I never heard such leaders in Sudan. This is a new beginning. This man wants new changes. We shall see new things happening in Sudan soon. This man may not be alone in his quest for changes. Indeed things are going to collapse for NCP government.

    All is a racist media fabrication from Khartoum. Karamallah did not, and has no intention to resign according to his own statement in front of Al-Gedaref rally. Al-Bashir and his ICC’ indicted cabinet need to prepare another killers’s brigade for Gedaref. I expect the handing over of Al-Bashir and his counsin and Uncle to the Hague before North Sudan winter of this year.

      Ekol,
      You could be rite that it is a ploy by beshit’s cousin to replace Ali. However, things have changed for them now. they are already withdrawing from Abyei and Panthou and they will have to cede these territories to South Sudan and eventually no oil of about 150,000 from South Sudan to sudan

    you hear sudanese ministers and state governers resign because when they resign, they can still have a good life..........but ask what will happen to a minister in south sudan if he resigns, he will become as poor as the other south sudanese.........

      Oh so you do agree with Deng.They can still have a good life from what they stole and if a minister resigns and he is poor that is an indication of honesty and integrity.

    "Do you want us to rebel....if you want us to we are capable of doing it and I can lead Gedaref and its people," he said."

    Oh God! I have never seen a brave leader like this. You would surely be dead unless you leave Khartoum immediately. My advice is to choose going to Ethiopia or join Nuba-BlueNile-Darfurian rebellion. Gearef to join these powerful regions, you be able to get rid of idiots.
