A statement issued on Thursday by the Special Assistant (media) to the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Sam Nwaobasi, confirm that President Goodluck Jonathan has already accepted the resignation.

The statement reads: “His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR has accepted the resignation of Eze Festus Odimegwu as Chairman of the National Population Commission with effect from Thursday, 17th of October, 2013.”

“Dr. Sam Ahaiwe, the Commissioner representing Abia State in the Commission, will act as chairman pending the appointment of a substantive Chairman.”

It would be recalled that Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State had few weeks back demanded the sack of Odimegwu for allegedly criticizing the works of his predecessor adding that Odimegwu was incapable of conducting the 2016 national census.

The Federal Government then had issued Odimegwu query to explain the reasons behind his utterances.
