“It is unfortunate and untimely however to leave under the current circumstances that are out of my control but I have decided to take a step in a new direction. Representing my country at the highest level for me has been the highest honour and service I could ever give and I have been extremely privileged to have been afforded the opportunity,” he added.

Mire added further: “My short career has been a roller coaster of highs and lows, stops and starts, frustrations and joys but will be one I shall look upon and cherish for the once in a lifetime opportunity I was lucky enough to experience and for that, I would like to express my gratitude.”
