Statesman Nigel Farage is resigning from UKIP after 20 years of actual service to his people.

From RT:
Brexit campaigner and MEP Nigel Farage has announced he is stepping down as leader of UKIP.

“I have never been and I have never wanted to be a career politician,” he said in a speech on Monday morning.

“I couldn’t possibly achieve more than we managed to achieve in the referendum. So I think it’s right that I should stand aside as leader of UKIP.”

Now that, as he sees it, he has his country back, Farage said he is ready to get “his life back.”
Farage's statement on UKIP's website:
I have decided to stand aside as Leader of UKIP. The victory for the 'Leave' side in the referendum means that my political ambition has been achieved. I came into this struggle from business because I wanted us to be a self-governing nation, not to become a career politician.

UKIP is in a good position and will continue, with my full support to attract a significant vote. Whilst we will now leave the European Union the terms of our withdrawal are unclear. If there is too much backsliding by the Government and with the Labour Party detached from many of its voters then UKIP's best days may be yet to come.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you the membership for your extraordinary support and generosity over the many years, I could not have done it without you.
Very sad to see him go, but he did his part in freeing the UK and now it's up to others to follow up.
