A special assistant to Governor Udom Emmanuel, Chris Okorie, has resigned his appointment.
Okorie, SA on electoral matters, tendered his resignation letter Wednesday through the secretary to the state government, Etekamba Umoren.
The resignation letter reads, “Please recall that by letter with Ref No SSG/AKS/S/253/Vol.13/245 dated 1 December, 2015, I was appointed Special Assistant on Electoral Matters (Ikot Ekpene Senatorial District).
“Twenty (20) months down the road Your Excellency, I am yet to be assigned duties commiserate with my status and pedigree, nor provided with the basic work tools, not even an office space.
“Worst still, there is no hope that this situation will improve in the nearest future.
“Therefore, Your Excellency, I do hereby resign my appointment as Special Assistant on Electoral Matter with effect from today, 28 June, 2017, to enable me channel my energy into other activities which I believe will ultimately be to the benefit of our beloved state.”
Okorie is a former chairman of Etim Ekpo Local Government Area.
