dimiss view controller and present another using NSNotificationCenter Swift3

Please help me out in dismissing a modal view controller and presenting main root controller using NSNotificationCenter. I am doing in the following way


override func viewDidLoad() {
        NotificationCenter.default.addObserver(self, selector: #selector(ForgotPasswordViewController.dimissController), name: NSNotification.Name.poptologin, object: nil)   
    func dimissController(){
        let mvc = self.storyboard?.instantiateViewController(withIdentifier: StoryboardIdentifier.LoginViewController.rawValue) as! LoginViewController
        self.navigationController!.popViewController(animated: true)
extension Notification.Name {
    static let poptologin = Notification.Name("PopToLogin")


@IBAction func ResetButtonAction(_ sender: Any) {
        self.dismiss(animated: true, completion: {
            DispatchQueue.main.async(execute: { () -> Void in
                NotificationCenter.default.post(name: NSNotification.Name.poptologin, object: nil)

In the above code LoginViewController(Main rootviewcontroller) and i am trying to present LoginViewController by dismissing the modal view. Please correct me if i am wrong and if the approach is wrong please point me in right direction
