Leasiolagi, a former government Treasurer and deputy treasurer, was unanimously selected for the post earlier this year and began a two year contact in February

His reasons for resigning after only four months as CFO are unknown

Board chairman Fepuleai Afa Ripley says the board hopes to resolve the matter by next week
