Three Special Assistants to the Chairman, Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo, Mr. Destiny Enabulele have resigned their appointments ahead of the September 19 Governorship election in Edo.
The latest to resign are Osarobo Osaro Anthony (Special Assistant on Empowerment), Aibangbee Chico (Special Assistant on Legislative Matters) and Obayagbona Augustine (Special Assistant on Political Matters).
The special assistants in their letters explained that the reason for their resignation was based on the fact that they were not ready to defect to the PDP along with the governor and the Council Chairman.
While thanking the Chairman for the opportunity given to serve, they noted that they still believe in the All Progressives Congress (APC) and will join forces to work for the victory of the party, come September 19.
It would be recall that about two weeks ago, five Senior Special Assistants to the Governor from the same coucil area had resigned their appointments on July 2.
It would also be recalled that Six out of Ten Councillors, including the Leader of the Legislative arm from the same local government refused to decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party with the Council Chief and the Governor, leading to their illegal suspension and subsequent stoppage of their salary.
