Nigel Farage, UKIP Brexit Campaigner Resigns-Leader of the United Kingdom Independent Party, Mr Nigel Farage has stepped down resigning after two weeks the United Kingdom voted to relinquish its membership of the European Union(EU).
Farage was on the frontline of of the leave campaign and has been accused of using false massages to carry out his leave campaign. The decision to leave had run the nation into a major confusion and apprehension as many have expressed fears that the leave stance may bring about hard times for the UK.
According to Farage, he could not have achieved more for his country after he led the campaign that caused the exit of UK from the European Union, claiming that his ambition was to bring UK out which he has achieved.
He said: “I couldn’t possibly achieve more”.
Farage had claimed that during the Brexit campaign, he fought using the slogan of wanting his country back but now he wanted his life back
Announcing his decision during a delivered speech in London, Mr Farage claimed his main reason for coming to politics was to see UK coming out od European Union, which he has now achieved.
According to Mr Farage, who was elected as an MEP for the party in 1999, he had never dreamt of a career political ambition and therefore would be standing down as UKIP leader. So far, he has spent two terms as leader of UKIP, a UK political party since 2006, holding a anti-European Union mentality.
He said: “I now feel that I’ve done my bit and that I couldn’t possibly achieve more,” the 52-year-old added.
“I won’t be changing my mind again, I assure you”.
“I have decided to stand aside as leader of Ukip. The victory for the Leave side in the referendum means that my political ambition has been achieved. I came into this business because I wanted us to a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.
“Ukip is in a good position and will continue, with my full support to attract a significant vote. Whilst we will now leave the European Union the terms of our withdrawal are unclear. If there is too much backsliding by the Government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters then Ukip’s best days may yet to come”, he added.
