Ahead of the 2020 election, another political blow may have been unleashed on the campaign of the incumbent Governor of Edo State, Mr. Obaseki, to return to power with the resignation of the Director, Obaseki/Shaibu Movement and a member of the state Waste Management Board, Patrick Iyoha.
Iyoha, in a letter dated July 28, addressed to Gov. Godwin Obaseki, said his resignation was with immediate effect and due to personal reasons.
Similarly, two members, including Mr Gabriel Oiboh, Chairman, State Post Primary Education Board, also rendered their letters of resignation to the governor.
Oiboh and first member of the board, Mr Osanyemwere Osawe, in a letter dated July 28, said their resignations followed pressure to defect to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Three commissioners of the Edo State Oil and Gas Producing Area Development Commission on Monday resigned their appointments.The commisioners — Osamwonyi Atu, Emmanuel Odigie and Rilwanu Oshiomhole — represented Edo South, Edo Central and Edo North senatorial districts.
