Paul Ohonbamu, Edo State Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, has resigned his position.
The cabinet member previously known for his passionate defense of the Obaseki-administration said in an exclusively obtained resignation letter that he has “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.”
Paul Ohonbamu’s resignation, barely a month after the governor’s Chief of Staff famously walked away, continues the trend of high-profile exit from the troubled Obaseki-administration following the widespread knowledge that the incompetent governor has grown deeply unpopular in the state and will lose the APC primary set for the 22nd of June.
Reliable sources in the Government House say several other senior aides are planning their exit.
“Everyone knows that Governor Godwin Obaseki has been deserted by the people. He is a man in his last days as Governor. Lots of people are secretly plotting their exit but they are afraid of announcing it publicly because the governor has issued threats. It’s like they are being held against their will now,” one of the sources said under the conditions of anonymity to avoid retributive actions.
