The Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, Abdullahi Dikko Inde has resigned from his position.
The resignation takes effect on Tuesday, August 18.
Dikko was said to have formally written to President Muhammad Buhari about two weeks ago, indicating his willingness to voluntarily resign after six years in the saddle.
Born on May 11, 1960, Inde who is from Katsina State as Buhari, became Comptroller-General of Customs on August 17, 2009.
Though it could not be immediately be ascertained what prompted the Customs boss to throw in the towel, inside sources hinted our correspondent that, Inde has not been comfortable with his assignment since the emergence of President Buhari, ostensibly because of the roles he played in the build up to the March presidential elections.
