Paul Ohonbamu has resigned from the Administrative of Obaseki as Information Commissioner in Edo State on Thursday 4th of June after tending his Resignation Letter in his words , which was addressed to Obaseki, thanking him for the opportunity to serve the state.
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 cabinet member and operate outside it for the general good of Edo State and pursuit of happiness for the citizens”.
The Former Information Commissioner, a lawyer, also expressed gratitude to Obaseki for indulging him in his purposeful and sophisticated Administration.
He thanked the ever loyal members of the Edo state executive council, stating that he was particularly delighted that the governor’s re-election bid was firm and surefooted.
Ohonbamu added: “Whether we shall meet again I know not. Therefore, our everlasting farewell take. If we do meet, while we shall smile, if not, it is true this parting was well made.”
Meanwhile, it was gathered that Ohonbamu resigned for being sidelined, especially with Edo governor’s Special Adviser on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, taking over his duties, which he had endured for so long, but got fed up and he decided to quit.
Osagie’s mobile line was not available as at press time, to react to the allegations.
