Barely 24 hours after Lucky Aiyedatiwa took over as the substantive governor of Ondo State, the Commissioner For Infrastructure, Lands and Housing, Aminu Raimi has tendered his resignation letter. 

Raimi resigned his appointment on Thursday following the death of former Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, who died of a protracted prostate cancer, which he had battled for over a year. 

In his letter of resignation addressed to the office of the Secretary to the State Government and made available to journalists, Raini stated that his decision to resign from the cabinet was a result of his conscience.  

A copy of the letter obtained by Daily Trust was titled ‘Resignation of appointment as commissioner for infrastructure, lands and housing.’

The letter read, “I write to tender my resignation of appointment as Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands and Housing with effect from today, 28 December 2023.  

“This decision is anchored on my conscience, as my leader and dear boss, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, SAN, CON joined the Saint Triumphant.

“I sincerely thank our dear Arakunrin and the good people of the state for the opportunity to serve in his cabinet as Senior Special Assistant on Lands and Infrastructure, Special Adviser on Lands, Works and Infrastructure and Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands and Housing. Accept my warmest regards please.”

Aside from Raimi; others who have thrown in their resignation letters include late Akeredolu’s Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, the Special Assistant on Photography to the former governor, Olawale Abolade and the Senior Special Assistant to Akeredolu on Special Duties and Strategy, Dr Doyin Odebowale. 

They attributed their resignation to the death of Akeredolu whom they noted appointed them to office and gave them the opportunity to serve the people of the state. 

Recall that a member of the State Executive Council, Dare Aragbiaye had resigned his position as the Special Adviser on Union Matters and Special Duties in the cabinet, shortly after the death of Mr Akeredolu was announced in the state. 

Aragbiaye, in the copy of his resignation letter, said his decision to resign from the cabinet was based on the death of Akeredolu, to whom he pledged his loyalty even to his death.
