Red Sea State governor to step down?

An unsubstantiated blog report suggests that Governor Mohamed Tahir Eila had submitted his resignation. Since the state governors are appointed by the central government, it is up to Khartoum to receive it.

It may be that various governors of the states in north Sudan are doing also resigning, with a view to change coming in July, when South Sudan becomes another country.

Governor Tahir leads the Red Sea State. He is a Beja man, and has facilitated development of the east during his time of leadership. He is also a friend of the policies of President al Bashir.
