[From ANIEKAN ANIEKAN, Calabar]
Special Adviser to Cross River Governor, Prof Ben Ayade, on Presidency and National Assembly Matters, Divine Amina Arong, has resigned her appointment.
She terminated her appointment with the government in a letter addressed to the governor through the office of the secretary to the state government, Tina Agbor Banku, Esq.
The letter made available to journalists in Calabar on Tuesday, and titled: “Letter of resignation as special Adviser to the governor of Cross River State on Presidency and National Assembly Matters”, is dated December 29, 2020.
The letter reads in part: “I hereby tender my resignation as special Adviser to the governor of Cross River State on Presidency and National Assembly Matters from today, the 29th day of December 2020.
“The reason to resign from my position is personal.”
No official reason has been given for her resignation and it is still unclear if the government will accept her resignation.
Sources however disclose that her resignation from the government may not be unconnected with the present crisis rocking the state chapter of the PDP.
