Edo State Commissioner for Minerals, Oil and Gas, Mr Joseph Ikpea, has resigned from the cabinet of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
Ikpea’s retirement made him the third Commissioner to resign in Obaseki’s cabinet in three months.
He said in his resignation letter: “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 tomorrow.
“Moreover, the party that is known today as APC was brought to Esan South East by me and over 90 per cent 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.”
