Kwara State Governor, Abdul Rahman AbdulRazaq, has appointed famous skit maker, Abdulgafar Ahmed Abiola (popularly known as “Cute Abiola”) as Special Assistant on Creative Industries.
Abiola is a former Navy Officer who resigned to concentrate on his comic business.
Born on April 28th, 1996 in Ilorin, Kwara State, the new governor’s aide is a household name in the fast-growing skit industry and well known for his comedy skits with the identity of Lawyer Kunle.
He wrote in his resignation thus: “With profound gratitude, I deeply appreciate the Nigerian Navy for giving me the uncommon opportunity to imbibe discipline through a regimented procedure in the areas of career development, moral values, and work ethics, to mention but a few. I can dauntlessly say that I have the required intelligence and human development finesse to continue to live a prosperous life.
“I urge all my fans to join me in appreciating the Chief of Naval Staff and all my senior colleagues for contributing immensely to my career development, while I used their pedestal to realise my duty of protecting and defending our dear country. Sincerely, the Nigerian Navy has become my roadmap to a sustainable career path.
“I was overwhelmed with regard to the approval of my exit from the Navy by the Chief of Naval Staff so as for me to have enough time to passionately pursue my dreams. This singular act of the Chief of Naval Staff is highly terrific and it shows how the Navy is very passionate about the dreams of their officers.
“I am still a part of the Nigerian Navy family, and I promise to continue to positively represent the Nigerian Navy either in Nigeria or abroad. I am proud to have served in such an institution as the Nigerian Navy.
“I want to sincerely appreciate all my senior colleagues, colleagues and junior colleagues who were very instrumental to my success story, for my wish to you is fair winds and following seas because I know you will remain always faithful.”
