Ayade’s Aide Resigns Over Defection


The Special Adviser to Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River State on Sustainable Development Goals, Mr Mark Obi, has resigned his appointment.

In his resignation letter, which he signed and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Calabar, the state capital, Obi said that “as a founding member of the People’s 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.



“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 Gov. 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,” the letter read.
