Barely two hours after she was redeployed from the Ondo State Ministry of Water and Sanitation to the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Mrs Yetunde Adeyanju, resigned her appointment on Wednesday.
The State governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, had during the inauguration of two new Commissioners, announced the redeployment of Adeyanju and a few others in a cabinet reshuffle.
Shortly after announcement of the minor cabinet reshuffle, Adeyanju tendered her resignation, saying she wanted to explore other endeavours outside politics for now.
In the letter of resignation, Mrs Adeyanju appreciated Governor Akeredolu for the opportunity to serve the people of Ondo State.
She said, “I hereby resign my appointment as a Commissioner in Ondo State with immediate effect.
“My decision is predicated on a personal conviction to explore other endeavours outside politics for now.
“However, I’m grateful to you for the golden opportunity given to me to contribute to the growth of our dear state, especially with the Kamomi Aketi Rural Water Supply.
“You gave me the platform and I’m proud that I used it well for the good of humanity. Kamomi Aketi Water Sheme remains the joy of thousands of rural dwellers today.
“Once again, I thank you for the opportunity to serve.”
