“I feel that I cannot continue to work with the required professionalism and passion as I have done, and to deal with the many issues involved with this programme.

“I’ve chosen not to point fingers in the past and will not do that now, and even when it would have been better for me personally to blame others I’ve tried to recognize what I could do to affect the situation and keep a level of integrity.”
