Meanwhile, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to his resignation, see reactions below:
Seun onigbinde made a big mistake by accepting the offer, confuse himself more by deleting his account and later fucked up by your resigning

What Sahara Reporters did with that Seun Onigbinde headline reminds me of what they did with Goodluck Jonathan's "Stealing is not corruption" (something he never said or implied).
Yele Sowore shouldn't be in detention, but he should be facing a lifetime of libel lawsuits.

Seun Onigbinde of BudgIT, has resigned his appointment as Technical Adviser at the Ministry of Budget and National Planning.
Me: 2 down. We will never allow you work with an adminstration you criticize on a daily and whose policies you don't believe in…

I'm a bit sentimental about this Seun Onigbinde resignation. Seriously if you're an APC member, you will do everything possible to make sure he wasn't appointed in the first place. Putting him in that position can go either way for Seun Onigbinde and he took the easy way.

I don't think twitter outrage is the sole reason for Seun Onigbinde's resignation, just look at what Prof Pius Adesanmi(May his soul continue to RIP) said about him crossing the divide over a year ago,maybe Seun resumed and was like 'Naaaaah this system will waste my effort' pic.twitter.com/gdsNj5KNBj

Take a pause and ask yourself where you belong. The internet couldn't give Seun Onigbinde the chance to fix those things he criticised. We'd be better off fixing our problems for real than just politicising everything. My POV. pic.twitter.com/VH8K58ZoaJ

First it was Olu Onemola, now Seun Onigbinde that resigned due to the fact that they criticized Buhari and were given positions in govt.
Who brought them down?
Lemme shock you, their brothers from the Southwest.

Political appointment takes more than being qualified to be successful while at it. You have to grow some balls, be brutal, be a mad man— to lead mad people. Nigerians does not look easy to lead.
Seun Onigbinde was lacking in the above mentioned to have quit over little insults.

Mr Abah has to do thread for us to explain why Seun Onigbinde resigned.#twitterjobhunters

First it was Festus Adebyo and Olu Onemola and now, its Seun Onigbinde. Young critics, hope you are leaning learnable lessons? Let your criticism be issue based, never go for personality.

From my own point of view, Seun has done the right thing here.
Activists must not allow the hope of doing good for the country blind them to the realities of working under a deliberately bad govt.

Now that Seun Onigbinde has resigned, the critical question to ask is What changes would he have brought through his appointment?
You think the irunmales and orisas in the ministry he was appointed to will watch him pull carpets from their feet?
Let's be real with ourselves
