News gathered that the Special Adviser to Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River State on Sustainable Development Goals, Mr Mark Obi, has resigned his appointment.
In the statement the reason of his resignation is 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.
He concluded that “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.
