‘I Can’t Bear The Attack On My Dignity Anymore’, Amnesty Office Spokesman Says As He Resigns

Daniel Alabrah-Amnesty Office spokesmanThe Head of Media and Communication of the Presidential Amnesty Office, Mr. Daniel Alabrah, has resigned his appointment as the spokesman for the office.

In a resignation letter dated September 8, 2015 and addressed to Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta/Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (retd.), Alabrah cited “irreconcilable difference as well as inexplicable antagonism and attack on his dignity and self-esteem” as the reason for his action.

He said recent development in the office had made the work environment not conducive for the continuing performance of his job.

“In the last three years and three months, I have, through this office and the Presidential Amnesty Programme, been offered the privilege and opportunity to render service to our dear country.

“During this period, I believe that my commitment to duty and the sacrifices made helped to form the progressive outlook that the programme now enjoys.

“Regrettably, the initial positive indications of acceptance of my presence in your new team have waned, resulting in yet inexplicable antagonism towards me and accentuated by an attack on my dignity and self-esteem. It is for these and other reasons that I wish to resign with effect from today, Tuesday September 8, 2015”, the letter read in part.
