Gov Ayade’s Adviser On SDG Resigns, Gives Reasons | READ IN FULL
The Special Adviser to Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River state on Sustainable Development Goals(SDG), Mark Obi, has resigned.
Obi cited political party difference as his reason for resigning his appointment under Ayade’s administration.
He said he would not switch over to the All Progressives Congress (APC), as he is a founding member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Cross River state.
In the resignation letter signed by Obi and made available to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, June 7, in Calabar, Obi said;
“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 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,” the letter read.
