Cute Abiola Quits Nigerian Navy, Gives Reason
Abdulgafar Ahmad, popularly known as Cute Abiola, a Nigerian comedian, has resigned from the Nigerian Navy.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that the skit creator made the announcement a few hours after Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq appointed him as his Special Assistant on Creative Industries on Friday.
According to the 26-year-old, he is resigning from the Navy so that he can devote more time to pursuing his dreams.
His departure came a year after the Nigerian Navy arrested and detained him for about a month for violating the Armed Forces Social Media Policy.
In a Facebook post on Friday, he thanked the Chief of Naval Staff for approving his resignation:
With profound gratitude, I deeply appreciate the Nigerian Navy for giving me the uncommon opportunity to imbibe discipline through a regimented procedure in the areas of career development, moral values, work ethics, to mention but a few. I can dauntlessly say (sic) that, I have the required intelligence and human development finesse to continue to live a prosperous life.
I urge all my fans to join me in appreciating the Chief of Naval Staff and all my senior colleagues for contributing immensely to my career development, while I used their pedestal to realize my duty of protecting and defending our dear Country. Sincerely, Nigerian Navy has become my roadmap to a sustainable career path.
I was overwhelmed with regards to the approval of my exit from the Navy by the Chief of Naval Staff so as for me to have enough time to passionately pursue my dreams. This singular act of the Chief of Naval Staff is highly terrific and it shows how the Navy is very passionate about the dreams of their officers.
I am still a part of the Nigerian Navy family, and I promise to continue to positively represent the Nigerian Navy either in Nigeria or abroad. I am proud to have served in Such an institution like the Nigerian Navy.
I want to sincerely appreciate all my Senior Colleagues, colleagues and junior colleagues who were very instrumental to my success story, for my wish to you is fair winds and following seas, because I know you will remain always faithful. Thank you the Nigerian Navy.
