Commenting after Nigel Farage today announced that he is stepping down as UKIP Leader, UKIP’s Northern Ireland Leader, David McNarry said:
“The country owes Nigel Farage deserved recognition for his unstinting contribution in securing the nations support to Leave the European Union.
Personally, I want to thank him for his total commitment to Northern Ireland and the role he honoured me with in local politics. Together with a band of determined local councillors and activists, UKIP are going from strength to strength, thanks to Nigel’s leadership.
“Nigel stands down self-satisfied that for him after a lifetime of dedication to take our country back, it is mission accomplished. Few can draw a line in politics with a legacy in place that rewards him with a positive place in history.”
Mr. McNarry added:
“He became the Leader of the People’s Army and not only won the battle he has won the war. I give him my thanks for all that he has achieved.
Nigel deserves a rest and time with his family to enjoy his life as he chooses. I wish him well in all he does.”
