SEUN Onigbinde, co-founder, BudgIT, has resigned his appointment as the technical adviser to Clem Agba, minister of state for budget and national planning. Onigbinde said he resigned his appointment in the interest of Nigeria.
Onigbinde made his announcement on Monday, September 16, on his Medium page and shared the link on his official Facebook page and Twitter handle, stating: “Upon further reflections on the furore that has been generated by my new role as the technical adviser to the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, I humbly resign the appointment.
He said he was “very grateful to the Honourable Minister, Prince Clem Ikanade 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 also been humbled by the faith and belief that numerous persons have expressed in me. My sincere interest is to see a Nigeria that grows and optimises resources for the benefits of all Nigerians.”
According to him, his loyalty to the good cause of Nigeria compelled him to accept the call to provide technical skills and this experience has more than strengthened it, wishing the Nigerian Government led by President Muhammadu Buhari well.
“I will always be of help to the federal government in my capacity as the director of BudgIT, a critical fiscal transparency group, as I have been to several agencies. I would also work to ensure that BudgIT continues to build civic awareness on the right of every Nigerian to know how public resources are managed,” he said.
