“Thank you so much, Sir and Ma. My resignation is borne out of family issues. I have given my 100% loyalty to this government but my family is tearing apart.

“The Bible says ‘Woman be submissive to your husband’. The Bible also said that ‘two shall become one’. As a Deaconess that I am, I have to go back and study my scripture very well. In obedience to these scriptures, I decided to resign and save my marriage.

“I sincerely and most humbly appreciate all that you have done for me. I am not an ungrateful person and can never be. Please bear with me for my children’s sake. I wish you well in your future political endeavors.”
