Cross River State Gov’s Special Adviser Resigns
Cross River State governor’s special adviser has resigned.
The Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), Mark Obi, has resigned.
In his resignation letter, Mr Obi said, “As a founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would not defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“Following recent happenings in the political alignment of the state governor, I am persuaded to review my involvement in the current state administration.”
The letter further stated, “Consequently, being a founding and subsisting member of the PDP in Cross River, I cannot in good conscience remain in my appointment as special adviser on Sustainable Development Goals.
“I hereby resign my appointment as special adviser immediately. I am very grateful to Governor Ayade for finding me worthy to serve the state in the said capacity.
“Nevertheless, I will continue to support the state and government in any way possible as a stakeholder and senior citizen.”
Mr Obi had represented Boki 2 State Constituency in the Cross River House of Assembly as a PDP member between 1999 and 2007.
