Commissioner resigns over ‘unjust removal of workers’ in Enugu
Commissioner for lands and urban development in Enugu state, Victor Nnam has reportedly resigned from his position.
Nnam through a letter dated October 29, 2021 and forwarded to Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, governor of the state said he resigned his appointment following the removal of heads of department in the ministry for “doing their duties diligently”.
“Sir, when you appointed me the commissioner for lands and urban development, Enugu State, in 2015, I accepted the appointment with hope that I was going to be allowed to bring on board world best practice in land administration,” the letter reads.
“I immediately proposed for establishment of a GIS land administration system to enable the ministry to stamp out land grabbers and create investors’ confidence in our land system. The proposal was rejected without explanation to date.
“However, the reason for my resignation is the recent removal of the professional heads of the department under me on punitive ground for simply doing their jobs diligently.
“My conscience will no longer allow me to continue to serve your administration while those innocent professional senior civil servants are punished for doing the right thing.
“I hereby resign my appointment as the commissioner for Lands and Urban Development, Enugu State, with effect from today, Friday, 29th of October, 2021, and submit the Black Prado SUV with plate number: 1ENSG 5712 to your office.”
