KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Dr Mohammad Agus Yusoff (pic) on Thursday (Nov 16) confirmed he had sent his notice to resign as the director-general of the Community Communications Department (J-Kom) to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim on Wednesday (Nov 15).

He said the decision was made as he has received a new job offer and was not due to pressure from any parties to let go the J-Kom post which he held since Feb 2 this year.

"I have an offer (employment), there was no pressure on me. So when everything has been settled, whether I want to retire or take on a new post which is even more challenging, just wait for the news.

"If my resignation is accepted by the Prime Minister, I will resign immediately,” he said when contacted by Bernama on Thursday.

The Prime Minister is currently leading a delegation to the 30th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting in San Francisco, United States from Nov 14 to 17.- Bernama
