President Muhammadu Buhari has formally accepted the resignation letter forwarded by the Deputy Governor (Operations) of Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr Adebayo Adelabu who also double as the Agbaakin Parakoyi of Ibadanland.
The letter signed by President Buhari on the 24th of May therein accepted the resignation and appreciated Mr Adelabu's unflinching service to the apex bank which cuts across various departments.
The president also took the time out to wish him all the best in his future ambition and quest to play more active role in politics in his home state, Oyo.
"Whilst appreciating your services in various Departments of Central Bank of Nigeria since 9th of April, 2014, I wish you the very best in your future ambitions and continued commitment to public service in our country and specifically, as you seek to play a more active role in politics, in your home state."
Mr Adebayo Adelabu who had earlier submitted his notice of disengagement from CBN so as to abstain completely from playing partisan politics whilst still in public service, has expressed his desire to contest for the next gubernatorial election in Oyo State under the platform of the ruling party, APC.
He hopes to make a sacrifice by resigning from the CBN and draw from his wealth of knowledge and experience of about 23 years in the private sector with his public sector exposure in the CBN, as well, to impact on the pacesetter state, Oyo and continue the good work started by the present Governor of the state, Gov. Abiola Ajimobi.
