Col. Tony Nyiam Rtd, a member of the Presidential Advisory Committee who was widely reported to have resigned from the committee after his outburst with the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, at the Benin City interactive parley of the committee has denied the reports saying he is still a member of the committee and never resigned at any point.

Proceedings of the committee in the Benin meeting on Monday were reportedly disrupted by thugs when they stopped Governor Oshiomhole and others from making contributions to the ongoing talks.

The disruption was said to have erupted after, the Cross Riverian, Tony Nyiam, shouted down the Governor while making his contribution.

The governor reportedly took the stage to make his contribution and objected to spending huge public funds on what he called a wasteful venture, arguing that, during the tenure of President Olusegun Obasanjo, money was spent on a similar conference and at the end, nothing came out of that conference.

While the governor was still delivering his speech, Col. Nyiam was said to have stood up to challenge the governor and shouted him down.
The retired military officer was reported to have apologized to the committee and resigned his membership when the committee went to apologize to the governor.

But in a telephone chat with CrossRiverWatch this evening, Col. Inyam said, “No, I have not resigned. Don’t mind those reports. They are not true. I am still a member of the committee. I never resigned at any point. I agree that there was uproar in the hall on Monday and they are now alleging that I hired thugs. Hire thugs from where? To do what? I just ran out of patience and over-reacted. But I have not resigned.

“I also want to admonish that my reaction is not an example that you young people should copy. I should not have reacted the way I reacted. I know I over reacted. I should have responded differently to the situation”.

He further expressed hope that the incident will not dampen the mood but rather strengthen expectations as they continue their nationwide consultation.
