“I write to notify Your Excellency of my decision to withdraw my services from the office of the Chairman of Anti-Deforestation Task Force. My reasons for the withdrawal are directly connected with the consistent interferences in the operations of the ATF by other agencies of Government; without any attempt at joint consultations or synergy. In particular also, the total lack of security cover over all the field staff and operatives that had been deployed by ATF into strategic positions all over the State, has constituted another major hinderance.”

The above is an extract from a resignation letter by Mr. Odey Oyama, Chairman Anti-Deforestation Task Force addressed to the Cross River State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade dated Friday March 27, 2020.

See letter below.

The resignation letter carried four annexure and they’re below.
