Amina Arong, a close associate of Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River has resigned her appointment with the State Government.
Arong, in a 49-word letter addressed to Mr. Ayade on Tuesday said her resignation was for ‘personal’ reasons.
She served as Special Adviser on Presidency and National Assembly matters and had been a henchwoman for the Governor politically.
“I hereby tender my resignation as Special Adviser to the Governor of Cross River State on Presidency and National Assembly Matters from today, the 29 day of December 2020,” the letter read, adding that; “The reason to resign from my position is personal. Thank you sir, for the opportunity given to me to serve.”
Ms. Arong is said to have been instrumental in the attempt to scuttle the ambitions of the National Assembly members in Cross River State who tried to negotiate their associates as ward and chapter executives of the People’s Democratic Party in the State.
She is reported to have also positioned herself as a stumbling block to scuttle the ambitions of Venatius Ikem, a former associate of Mr. Ayade to be the State Chairman of the party.
