2 Min Read

The Special Assistant to Senate President Ahmad Lawan on new media, Olu Onemola has resigned his position.

Onemola, who was appointed by Lawan on June 19, worked in the same capacity under Bukola Saraki in the 8th Senate.

His resignation is coming barely days after Lawan sacked Festus Adedayo as his special adviser on media and publicity. The duo have been accused of working for the opposition prior to their appointment.

In an internal memo to Lawan, Onemola said: “As an individual who prides myself in always setting a high standard and significant precedents I feel honoured to have been asked to fill this vital role in the service of our great country,” he said.

“I thank you sir, for the offer to continue on to serve and promote the work of the 9th Senate of the Federal Republic which I am sure is home out of your patriotic desire to serve the Nigerian people.

“However, at this time, given my personal antecedents, and the controversy that this has generated, I would respectfully like to be excused from taking up this national assignment.

“It is my hope that whoever does fill this role, builds upon what we have started in terms of opening up the activities of the Nigerian Senate to the public.

“I will be ready and available in whatever way to give my recommendations if and when requested as the new team begins its work.

“I have communicated my decision to the Chief of Staff, Babagana Muhammad Aji, and I wish the new team all the best as they work to meet the demands of the Nigerian people.”
