One of the top Indigenous administrators and leaders in the NT has resigned.
Well known Northern Land Council chief executive office Joe Morrison has this evening announced he is stepping down from the job.
Mr Morrison today announced his resignation to the Full Council of the NLC.
Mr Morrison has been CEO since February 2014 and said he resigned for personal reasons.
He also said it was time to explore other opportunities.
He said he had enjoyed his time at the NLC and said he had achieved many of the commitments he gave to the late Mr Wunungmurra who was chairman when he was recruited.
“The NLC is a fundamentally important institution for Aboriginal people of the Top End and he leaves the NLC in a better position to deal with the challenges faced by Traditional Owners than when he joined in 2014,” a statement from the NLC said.
“Mr Morrison will not be saying anything more at this time.”
