David Cameron has resigned as prime minister after Britain voted to leave the European Union.

The prime minister said Britain required "fresh leadership" to negotiate the country's exit from the EU.

"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 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.

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

Hmm! I pray the UK emerge from this a bigger and better economy.

Though staying in the EU would have been good, self determination sometimes, can be the way to go.

God bless David Cameron!

God bless the UK!

God bless Buhari!
God Bless Nigeria!

God bless You and Me!

This decision will definitely have merits and demerits.

To me, seems the demerits may be more: Their currency has crashed to all low in 31years and there is tendency it will depreciate more after this decision. Also it may discourage foreign investors frm investing in the country. Football arm will no doubt be affected.

Beautiful. Nobody wants pests and leeches all over the place.

Time to give Niger Delta our Referendum. We are tired of feeding Nigeria. We are tired of being in the same country with Hausa/Fulani parasites and rodents

No one insults God's own country and people (NIGERIA) and get away with it.

You called a Nation of over 180 million innocent people "Fantastically Corrupt" now Karma has caught up with you.

Buhari, you agreed that Nigeria is "Fantastically Corrupt", you will follow Comeron soon.

Buhari is even worse than Cameron.

Kudos to David.

Re: David Cameron Resigns As Prime Minister After Britain Votes To Leave EU by Nobody: 9:13am On Jun 24, 2016
lessons to pick up from this UK drama

1. The whites are more superior hence David Cameron put pride behind and did what he felt was best for the country not like our own country where our saraki's and Fayose's and David Mark will sit on the throne like it's their birth right.

2. The majority of the voters who asked to leave (50-70) have basically decided the future of their children for them. This is bad but we should blame it on we youths who live on social media instead of taking part in the decisions that affect our everyday life.

3. The Remain campaign lost because the youth who have all to lose in the referendum didn't come out to vote.

please ignore my typos if any and understand the point an trying to make. IT'S TIME FOR THE YOUTH TO MAKE DECISIONS FOR THEMSELVES AND NOT LET OLD AND UNSTABLE PEOPLE MAKE LIFE DECISIONS FOR US.

Thank you

A whole prime minister resigning despite the big pay, heavy security and other benefits

attached to being the first citizen of a country? You sir, earned my respect.

Now This is what i call sanity, serving your country through a public/political

office should be voluntary and not a do or die. This man wasn't involved in anything

dirty or accused of anything shady he just felt he wouldn't be capable of going further and he decided to resign.

Come to africa, its a whole different story. we are cursed on this continent ah swear

The Brits will survive. This doom and gloom was just a ploy to scare people into remaining with the EU.

Now Nigeria should have a referendum of sekf determination
