Naval personnel and skit-maker, Abdulgafar Ahmad, aka Cute Abiola, on Friday, reported having resigned from Nigeria Navy.
It would be recalled that Cute Abiola on November 14 2021 was detained for contravening the naval laws by posting a video of himself in military uniform on social media, an act which is said to violate the armed forces’ social media policy.
The comedian was given a conditional release on December 3.
Cute Abiola on his verified Facebook page announced that the Chief of the Naval Staff has approved his letter of resignation from the Nigerian Navy.
The statement read, “With profound gratitude, I deeply appreciate the Nigerian Navy for giving me the uncommon opportunity to imbibe discipline through a regimented procedure in the areas of career development, moral values, and work ethics, to mention but a few. I can dauntlessly say that I have the required intelligence and human development finesse to continue to live a prosperous life.
“I urge all my fans to join me in appreciating the Chief of Naval Staff and all my senior colleagues for contributing immensely to my career development, while I used their pedestal to realize my duty of protecting and defending our dear Country. Sincerely, the Nigerian Navy has become my roadmap to a sustainable career path.
“I was overwhelmed by the approval of my exit from the Navy by the Chief of Naval Staff so as for me to have enough time to passionately pursue my dreams. This singular act of the Chief of Naval Staff is highly terrific and it shows how the Navy is very passionate about the dreams of their officers.
“I am still a part of the Nigerian Navy family, and I promise to continue to positively represent the Nigerian Navy either in Nigeria or abroad. I am proud to have served in Such an institution as the Nigerian Navy.
“I want to sincerely appreciate all my Senior Colleagues, colleagues and junior colleagues who were very instrumental to my success story, for my wish to you is fair winds and following seas, because I know you will remain always faithful.”
Afrika Eyes has earlier reported that the Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq appointed the comedian as Special Assistant on Creative Industries.
