Paul Ohonbamu, the commissioner for communication and orientation in Edo state, has resigned from the administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Seun Okin, Channels TV political correspondent, broke the news on his Twitter page on Thursday, June 4.
At the time of filing this report, Ohonbamu is yet to disclose why he is leaving the governor's administration.
Legit.ng, notes that Ohonbamu's departure is coming a month after Governor Obaseki's chief of staff, Taiwo Akerele resigned his appointment.
Akerele on Saturday, April 25 threw in the towel after accusing the governor of sidelining him in state matters.
Although the former chief of staff stated clearly that he remained loyal to the governor's dream of transforming the south-south state, he noted that it was time he watched from the sidelines.
In his resignation letter dated April 25, 2020, Akerele wrote: “My decision to exit the government is based on administrative and governance grounds.
“I am solidly with His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, in his quest to transform Edo State. His mission and vision resonate with mine."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that to make certain his resolve to contest in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Edo, Governor Obaseki has picked and submitted his form.
Obaseki submitted the nomination and expression of interest form at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday, June 3. The form was received by Barrister Emma Ibidiro, the national organising secretary.
In other news, Obaseki has sent a stay clear message to the national chairman of the ruling party Adams Oshiomhole. He asked the chairman to stay clear of the party’s primary for the election of governorship candidate on June 22.
He disclosed this after submitting his nomination form at the national secretariat, saying it would be unfair of Oshiomole to be part of the process as a vested interest.
He said it is against natural justice for a man to be a judge in his own case.
