Edo Election: Trouble As Another Commissioner resigns from Obaseki’s cabinet


Barely 10 days to the Edo State governorship election, the state Commissioner for Minerals, Oil and Gas, Mr Joseph Ikpea‎, yesterday, resigned his apoointment from the cabinet of Governor Obaseki.

In his letter of resignation, dated September 9 and addressed to the governor, Ikpea refered to reason of trust, regard and interest for his renunciation.

In addition, he said he can’t forsake the All Progressives Congress (APC) he has assisted with sustaining in his council area and the state in general.

“Politics is all about interest, trust and respect for one another, but I have never seen any of this till date, and I am also not sure of it even if I am there till tomorrow.

“Moreover, the party that is known today as APC was brought to Esan South East by me and over 90 percent of my supporters are APC members till date.

“So, it is difficult for me to leave the house that I built. Considering also that this administration didn’t recognise my leadership role”, he said.

Ikpea, nonetheless, said he would consistently be accessible to offer help to the government at whatever point called upon to do as such.
