Victor Chukwuemeka Nnam, the Commissioner for Lands in Enugu State, has resigned.
Nnam said he resigned when his colleagues were removed from office for “just executing their jobs conscientiously,” according to a statement he posted on social media.
His statement is as follows:
“I would want to use this opportunity to tell my family, friends, acquaintances, well-wishers, and the general public that I have quit my position as Commissioner for Lands in Enugu State.”
The dismissal of the PROFESSIONAL HODs UNDER ME ON PUNITIVE GROUND FOR SIMPLY DOING THEIR JOBS DILIGENTLY is the reason for my resignation. I CANNOT CONTINUE TO SERVE THE GOVERNMENT AS A TECHNICIAN AND A HUMAN WITH CONSCIENCE WHILE THOSE INNOCENT PROFESSIONALS ARE PUNISHED FOR DOING THEIR JOB.
I may have disappointed many of my friends and well-wishers who believe I should stay, but THIS IS THE BEST DECISION FOR MY CONSCIENCE AND ME.
I sincerely thank everyone who has supported me during my two years with this government, and I promise you that WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED.
Thank you for all of your help.”
