Seun Onigbinde, the co-founder of BudgIT, a civic group which is dedicated to upholding transparency in the federal government's financial dealings, has resigned his appointment over widespread criticisms.
On his official Twitter page, Onigbinde revealed that said that his resignation, which he announced on Monday, September 16, came as a result of heated reactions that have greeted his new appointment as a technical adviser to the minister of state for budget and national planning, Prince Clem Ikanade Agba.
Onigbinde expressed his gratitude to Agba, President Muhammadu Buhari and the ministry, adding that his wish to see a prosperous Nigeria was what led him to accept the appointment in the first place.
He added: "I would also work to ensure that BudgIT continues to build civic awareness on the right of every Nigerian to know how public resources are managed."

The president told the ministers that he expected them to double their efforts in this second tenure and work in harmony. He also stressed that communication and teamwork are the hallmarks of success.
