Edo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Paul Ohonbamu, on Thursday, resigned from the cabinet of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Ohonbamu, in a letter of resignation addressed to Governor Obaseki in Benin, wrote, “I hereby tender my letter of resignation as a commissioner in Edo to His Excellency, Mr Godwin Obaseki this June 4, 2020.
“Without setting a precedent, I have decided to step aside as cabinet member and operate outside for the general good of Edo and pursuit of happiness for the citizens.”
The commissioner also expressed gratitude to the governor for giving him the opportunity to serve the state.
He added, “I am particularly delighted that His Exellency’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.”
