Oyinlola resigns as NIMC chairman

104

The chairman of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) on Wednesday resigned from the position to embark on a new and greater political engagement.

“ I am moving on to chart a new course in my politics outside the ruling party and this thus, demands my dropping the NIMC chairmanship”, he said in a letter to president Muhammadu Buhari.

“Your Excellency, I must put on record my very deep sense of appreciation for the special privilege and consideration you gave me to serve our fatherland in that capacity. As I stated in my appreciation letter to you shortly after the appointment, the offer was a clear call to service.

“I gave the job the dedication it deserved and would have loved to continue but I regret to inform Your Excellency that I have a new, greater political engagement that will make that difficult and even impolitic.

“Sir, as one of my bosses in the army, I believe you would understand my stand given recent political developments. The training I got as a decorated officer and gentleman precluded me from engaging in any act that could amount to disloyalty and conflict of interest.

“I am moving on to chart a new course in my politics outside the ruling party and this thus, demands my dropping the NIMC chairmanship. “I thank you, sir, once again for the great honour and confidence reposed in me. However, there is time to take a job and another time to leave it and move on. For me, the time to work on something else in the interest and service of our people is now.

“I wish Your Excellency good-luck while praying that you will finish well and strong in the service of our country.”
