Governor Obaseki’s Chief Of Staff Resigns



Taiwo Akerele and Godwin Obaseki

The Chief of Staff to Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, Taiwo Akerele has officially resigned from his position.

In a letter to the governor, dated 25th April 2020, Akerele based his decision to exit his position as Chief of Staff to his principal, Obaseki on administrative and governance grounds.

He stated: “My decision to exit the government is based on administrative and governance grounds.

“I am solidly with His excellency Mr Godwin Obaseki in his quest to transform Edo state. His mission and vision resonate with mine.

“This is all I have to say, I will like to be given the opportunity to go private as I part ways administratively with the government based on principles.

“I thank his excellency for the opportunity given to me to serve in this capacity and also thanks to His Royal Majesty, Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II for his immense leadership and support during the period I served in this capacity. May his reign be long and peaceful. Amen.”

The Punch however gathered that his resignation ‘was not unconnected with the lingering crisis between the Governor and the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’.
