The Minister of State for Niger Delta Affairs, Prof. Claudius Daramola, may not be finding things funny at the moment.

This is because his London returnee Special Adviser, Nathaniel Adojutelegan, has resigned owing to the minister’s inability to pay his salary.

Adojutelegan left his law practice in the UK in 2015 to work with the Minister and has since been working without pay.

He told Sahara Reporters: “I want the whole world to know that I made a lot of sacrifices and the resignation is for the record that I didn’t receive any allowance or payment.

“It was a sacrifice for me to leave my law practice in London and come down to Nigeria and got an accommodation for about four million naira without being given a refund,” he was quoted to have said.

In his resignation letter, the lawyer stated: “I appreciate the rare opportunity you offered me to serve our country notwithstanding the personal sacrifice I had to make to work for you without any form of remuneration in the last one year.”
