Recall that months ago, Paul Ohonbamu (Communication and Orientation) and Ms. Omua Oni-Okpaku (Environment and Sustainability) also resigned from Obaseki’s cabinet.

Also, recall that Obaseki’s chief of Staff, Taiwo Akerele resigned days before the Governor joined PDP.

Ikpea, in his resignation letter dated September 9 and addressed to Governor Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), cited trust, respect and interest as responsible for his calling it quits.

Ikpea expressed that he found it hard to leave the APC which he helped to nurture in his local government and at the state level.
