“I do not think it would be right for me to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination,” he said in a statement outside Downing Street.

He promised to “steady the ship” over the coming months before stepping down in October.

Mr Cameron said the result was the “will of the British people” which was an “instruction which must be delivered”.

Mr Cameron was close to tears as he announced his decision.

The referendum, called by Mr Cameron, delivered a shock victory for the Leave campaign.

The Brexit vote immediately sent the pound tumbling and sparked calls for his resignation.

Boris Johnson is the favourite to replace Mr Cameron.

  1. Nigeria leaders should emulate this great leader. leadership is not by do or die affairs,is by the voice of the people.

  2. Nigerian Leaders, politicians should learn from Mr Cameron of Britain, imagine our Senate President, Dr Saraki upon the high immunity of corruptions level against him, he still want to prove right,

    • Well most of our leadership in country need to sanctions because we don”t know the good one out of them again but all of them travel abroad and see a lot of good leadership and how they manage their economy but we here, self attitude and other corrupt mind is our behavior.

  3. One of the reasons it comes easier for holders of political offices in developed nations to let go is the fact that their offices are not exposed to the incestuous remunerations like ours.
    Bukola Saraki and Ekweremadu would rather die or liquidate the National assembly than let go their positions even in the face of established infractions.
    It’s all about inappropriate allocation of undeserving perquisites to their offices.
    Remove those unwarranted allowances and you’ll see mass resignations.
    It is reprehensible that a criminal trial of two senators could be so terrestrially likened to the emasculation of democracy in Nigeria.
    House of representative chamber must voice a departure from senate’s hypnotized stereotype and restore dignity to the National assembly.

  4. @bukola ajisola…..u are absolutely correct.our so call political office holder with high portfolios are exposed to huge remunerations.even at local government level…..make a governor ,senator,minister e.t.c to earn strictly like 250k per month,they Will voluntarily resign if there is any miss appropriate levelled against them.they will prefer to serve themselves by going to their own business.until this happened,then Nigeria will be free of corruption.kudos to cameron
