The head of Sudan‘s ruling military council has resigned in a speech broadcast live on state television, naming Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah Burhan as his successor.

The announcement by General Abin bin Auf  late on Friday as tens of thousands of protesters rallied in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, demanding a civilian-led transition after the military overthrow of the country’s longtime ruler, Omar al-Bashir.

“I, the head of the military council, announce I am giving up the post,” Ibn Auf said, just a day after he was sworn in as the head of a transitional military council.

“This is for the benefit of our nation, without having to look at special interests, big or small that may impede its progress,” he said in a brief statement.”I would like to recommend that you work together and reach a solution very speedily.”

Ibn Auf said he was confident Burhan “will steer the ship to safe shores”, and added he was stepping aside to “preserve unity” of the armed forces.

Protesters in Khartoum greeted the move with “ululations and cheers”, said Al Jazeera’s Hiba Morgan.

“People are celebrating on the streets; they are saying that they managed to topple President Omar al-Bashir after four months of protests and less than 48 hours after the military council took over, they managed to bring down Ibn Auf, too,” she said from the capital.

There has been no formal announcement about Bashir’s resignation, but local state television said on Thursday morning that the army wass set to make a ‘major announcement’ leading to celebrations on the streets and outside the palace in Khartoum which remains secured by the military.

Several international news outlets quoting reliable government sources reported that Bashir had stepped down, with reports indicating that a transitional council led by Lt. Gen. Ahmed Awad Ibn Auf willbe in charge.

Bashir has been in power for 30 years.

Tens of thousands of people have been maintaining a protest vigil outside military headquarters since Saturday, demanding the removal of the president.

On two successive nights they were attacked by intelligence and militia forces loyal to him – and on both occasions the army stepped in to protect them.

This was an early sign of fracturing in a previously steadfast security establishment.

State media said the military would make an important announcement imminently.
