Dr. Rahman Olusegun Mimiko,
The Governor of Ondo State, Office of the Governor,
Alagbaka, Akure .
Mr. Governor Sir,
RESIGNATION OF MY APPOINTMENT AS COMMISSIONER.
Recall sir, our meeting earlier in the year wherein I sought and obtained Your Excellency’s approval for me to consult with and engage our party members and other stakeholders of my intention to serve our dear state in the capacity of Governor at the expiration of Your Excellency’s tenure.
In furtherance of the said endeavours and our latest discussion along the same line, I do hereby most respectfully convey my resignation forthwith as a Commissioner in the government of Ondo State.
May I put on record, the robust relationship we have shared in the service of our people beginning from the early 1990s where, as members of the then Social Democratic Party, I served as elected Chairman of the Ilaje/Ese Odo Local Government and Your Excellency then as a state Commissioner.
Providence was to bring us together later as Commissioners in the cabinet of the late Chief Adebayo Adefarati.
Let me express my appreciation for the opportunities given me by Your Excellency to serve our state in various other capacities which include, my appointment in your government as Chairman of the state Law Commission, twice as Commissioner in your cabinet, recommending me as a delegate of the South West to the 2014 National Conference
and for being your preferred representative in several critical political engagements.
To the Glory of God, there is no doubt that these positions have positively impacted the lives of our people and offered me the unique opportunity to etch my name and service indelible in the sand of time.
NOW THEREFORE, with confidence in God the author of my unalterable destiny, as I step out in futher engagement of our party members, structures and other stakeholders in the land, with my mind on the ultimate mandate of our people, your prayers and invaluable support as the leader of our great party, still I crave.
My warmest regards to Her Excellency your darling wife, our amiable First Lady.
