Secrets Behind The Resignation Of Gov. Obaseki's Chief Of Staff

Secrets Behind The Resignation Of Gov. Obaseki's Chief Of Staff
Edo State Gov. Godwin Obaseki
Chief of Staff to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, Mr. Taiwo Akerele, has tendered his resignation.

Akerele said his decision was based on administrative and governance grounds, but he remains loyal to the governor and his quest to rebrand Edo State. 

A part of his resignation letter reads:

“My decision to exit the government is based on administrative and governance grounds. I am solidly with His Excellency, Governor Godwin Obaseki in his quest to transform Edo state. His mission and vision resonates with mine."

While showing appreciation to the state governor and the Oba of Benin, Oba Ensure II, Akerele said he would like to be given the opportunity to live a private life outside politics.

“This is all I have to say, I will like to be given 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 express my appreciation 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,” he added

However, the Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, confirmed the development in a statement saying that though Gov. Obaseki is yet to receive any formal note on the matter, but will accept it whenever it gets to him.

“In the past few hours, it emerged on social media that the Chief of Staff, Mr. Taiwo Akerele, has resigned his appointment with the Edo State Government. 

“While the governor has not received any formal communication to this effect, he believes that this is a personal decision of Mr. Akerele. 

However, whenever the resignation letter gets to the governor, he would accept it, and he wishes Akerele the best in his future endeavours,” the statement read.

MackenzieSkyBlog learned that when Obaseki got the letter, he rejected it and requested that Akerele withdraw it while he looked into the matter.

According to Vanguard, Gov. Obaseki has approved the immediate appointment of Osaze Ethan Uzamere, the son of Senator Ehigie Uzamere as his new Chief of Staff.
