Governor Godwin Obaseki
An Edo Senior Special Assistant from Urhonigbe South ward 8, Faith Obasuyi has resigned from Governor Godwin Obaseki's government ahead of the governorship election scheduled to hold in the state in September.
In her resignation letter which was sent in on Friday August 14, Obasuyi alleged that recent activities of Obaseki's administration will not lead to the actualization of development and the promotion of woman and girl-child interest.
"I’m, therefore, not persuaded that the recent activities of the Gov Obaseki administration can lead me to achieving these interest especially when the governor has now abandoned the APC on whose back he rode to power.
‘This decision is borne out of my desire to join forces with our great party, the APC to ensure the emergence of a true Orhionmwon man as governor come September 19th, 2020.”
The vice-chairman of Orhionmwon Local Government Area, Hon Christian Iweka has also dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the APC.
