Victor Nnam: Explains why he cannot continue as Enugu Commissioner for Lands and Urban Development in a letter to Governor Ugwuanyi

In a letter dated Oct. 29, 2021 and addressed to the state governor, Nnam said that his resignation was due to undue interference from certain quarters.

The resignation letter partly read: “ Sir, when you appointed me in 2019, I accepted the appointment with hope that I was going to be allowed to bring world best practices in land administration.

“I immediately proposed for establishment of a GIS land administration system to enable the ministry stamp out land grabbers and create investors’ confidence in our land system.

“The proposal was rejected without explanation till date,” he said.

Nnam, however, said that the reason for the resignation was due to the recent removal of the professional heads of department under him on punitive grounds.

He said that such people were removed for simply doing their jobs diligently.

“My conscience will no longer allow me to continue to serve your administration while those innocent professional senior civil servants are punished for doing the right thing.

“I, hereby, resign my appointment with effect from Oct. 29, 2021 and submit the black Prado SUV with plate number: 1ENSG 5712 to your office,” Nnam said.

When a correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) contacted Nnam to confirm the authenticity of the resignation letter, he said, “yes, I resigned today”.

NAN reports that the land administration system in the state had been in chaos with incidences of land grabbing, resulting to over 100 lawsuits involving the ministry.
