Budgit co-founder, Seun Onigbinde, who was appointed just last week as the Technical Adviser to the Minister of Budget and National Planning, has resigned the position.
Onigbinde released a statement where he said his recent appointment would bring mistrust and opted to resign instead.
…It is clear that recent media reports about my appointment have created a complex narrative which I believe would engender an atmosphere of mistrust, as I planned to proceed.
Upon further reflections on the furore that has been generated by my new role as the Technical Adviser to the Minister of State and National Planning, I humbly resign the appointment.
I am very grateful to the Honorable Minister, Prince Clem Ikande Agba, for believing in my expertise and I also thank everyone who sent his or her congratulations to me in the short period. I have been humbled by the faith and belief that numerous persons have expressed in me.Seun Onigbinde – pmnewsnigeria.com
Onigbinde further disclosed that his loyalty to the country had compelled him to accept the appointment, and assured the Federal Government of his readiness to always be of help in his capacity as the Director of Budgit.
