Sen Prof Ben Ayade.
Governor of Cross River State.
Office of Governor.
REGNIGNATION AS SENIOR SPECIAL ADVISER SOLD MINERAL PROTECTION AND MONITORING DEVELOPMENT.
It’s with sadness that I wish to tender my resignation as SSA.
I have served as SSA for Eight (8) months. From Nov 2021 – June 2022
My decision to resign is bone out of the governor/governments insensitivity, wickedness and hatred for the good people of my Community NKO – in Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River State.
The governor through his deputy chief press secretary on Monday 27th June 2022 presided over by Governor, ordered the total elimination of the entire people of Nko- by the Nigerian Army for reasons best beneficial to him the governor.
His take and statement as Governor and Chief Security Officer of the State reads ..and I quote…….
The Governor has ordered the Nigerian Army to sustain it’s operation (kill) in Nko, until those behind the shooting of Six military personnel are produced or fished out. This statement is satanic of a leader and Chief Security Officer.
The Governor has NOT visited the screen of action, yet acts on hear say, yet Over 10 persons have been shot dead, houses razed down, children, women, aged displaced , properties destroyed by the Military.
Yet the Chief Security Officer will ask the Army to carryout their unslaught against the innocent and armless people of Nko-.
This is barbaric.
For the governor”s statement and hatred for my people, I resign henceforth., His statement clearly shows he wants (my people) extinct from the face of the earth. For this nonchalanlance, wickedness and barbaric act of My governor. I resign my appointment as Senior Special Assistant from today 29th June 2022.
My People First!!
Long Live Nko.
Goddie Archibong Akpama.
