Edo state Commissioner for Minerals,Oil and Gas, Joseph Ikpea has resigned his appointment.
In his resignation letter dated September 9, and addressed to Governor Godwin Obaseki, Ikpea said his party the All Progressives Congress (APC), was responsible for binging the administration to power and cannot abandon the party as majority of his supporters are members of the party.
“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 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.
