Tahav Agerzua, the Principal Special Assistant (PSA) to Governor of Benue State Samuel Ortom on Culture and Tourism, resigned his appointment on Wednesday.
Agerzua confirmed the development through a telephone call to journalists in Makurdi.
He claimed that his resignation was necessitated by recent political developments in the state ahead of the 2023 election.
In his words: “My resignation is to enable me fully express my right to freedom of association and expression”.
Agerzua also expressed gratitude to Governor Ortom for allowing him to be a part of his government.
Agerzua was also the Special Adviser to Ortom on Media and ICT, between 2015 and 2019.
He is a close associate of former Chief of Staff to Ortom, and a former governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Terwase Orbunde, who defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Monday.
