Obadiah Mailafia, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has resigned from his position at the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS.
He noted that he had to resign in protest against ongoing killings in Southern Kaduna which is affecting his people.
Recall that the former CBN Deputy Governor has been grilled twice by the Department of State Services (DSS) in Jos Office over his recent comments on the killings and Boko Haram terrorists linking politicians and a serving governor to the crisis.
“I have resigned from NIPPS,” he told Daily Trust.
“Nobody asked me or pressurized me to resign. I did it on my own.
“I decided that I cannot continue working, with all my good conscience, when my people are continually being killed and genocide is being committed against my people.
“That was the reason I gave, and the management has accepted my resignation,” he added.
He explained that he gave NIPPS one month’s notice from 18th August to 18th September when his resignation will take effect.
Mailafia maintained that his resignation is for the best interest of everybody.
Mailafia, a former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, had last Monday honoured another invitation by the Department of State Services (DSS).
It was the second time in five days that the DSS is interrogating Mailafia over comments he made on radio, concerning Boko Haram.
