Federal Lawmaker Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo Resigns Ahead of Swearing-In as Minister

 

In a surprising turn of events, Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, the lawmaker representing Akoko Northeast and Northwest federal constituency of Ondo, has tendered his resignation from the 10th National Assembly. His decision comes just hours before his scheduled swearing-in ceremony as a minister-designate.

 

Tunji-Ojo’s resignation was confirmed through a letter addressed to the House of Representatives Speaker, Tajudeen Abbas, late on Sunday night.

The letter cited his ministerial appointment as the reason for his resignation, indicating that he has been appointed by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to serve as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Having initially been elected to the House of Representatives in 2019, Tunji-Ojo made a notable impact as the Chair of the Committee on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) during the Ninth National Assembly. His dedication to public service led to his re-election in 2023.

 

However, Tunji-Ojo’s political trajectory has taken an unexpected turn. Originally nominated for the role of minister, he was listed as the minister for the newly established Marine and Blue Economy.

Yet, in a recent minor cabinet reshuffle executed by President Bola Tinubu, Tunji-Ojo was redeployed to the position of interior minister. This reshuffle saw former Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola replace him as the minister in charge of the Marine and Blue Economy portfolio.

 

As Tunji-Ojo embarks on his new role as interior minister, his resignation from the National Assembly underscores the dynamism and fluidity of political appointments and responsibilities within the Nigerian government. The upcoming swearing-in ceremony for the ministers-designate will likely take place amidst this reshuffling, marking the start of a new chapter for both the former lawmaker and the incoming cabinet members.
