Edo State Commissioner for Information, Paul Ohonbamu, has resigned his appointment from Governor Godwin Obaseki’s cabinet.
In his letter to the embattled governor, he said “I hereby tender my letter of resignation as a commissioner in Edo State to His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Obaseki this 4th day of June 2020. Without setting a precedent, I have decided to step aside as a cabinet member and. Operate outside it for the general good of Edo State and pursuit of happiness for the citizens.
“I remain eternally grateful to His Excellency, the Governor for indulging him in his purposeful and sophisticated administration. I greet you sir and the ever-loyal members of the state executive council. I am particularly delighted that His Excellency’s second term bid is firm and surefooted.
“Whether we shall meet again I know not, therefore our everlasting farewell take. If we do meet why we shall smile, if not it is true this parting was well made”, the letter said.
The governor in the last few months has been on a war path with his God father, Adams Oshiomole and supporters over his return to office for his second term.
