The Senior Special Assistant to Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Political Matters, Mr. Andrew Ogunsakin, has resigned his appointment. This is coming 21 days to the state’s governorship election slated for October 10.
His resignation letter was made available to WESTERN POST on Friday, September 18.
In the letter, Ogunsakin said: “Permit me, Your Excellency, to use this medium to convey my irrevocable decision to resign my office as Senior Special Assistant on Political (South) to the Governor of Ondo State with effect from today, September 18, 2020.
“The call of my constituents on me to join the train to actualize a common aspiration different from what is offered by your government and your party stands at the root of my decision to quit at this point.
“Being an appointee, this will necessarily conflict with the performance of my duty to you hence my resignation.
“I thank your Excellency for the opportunity afforded me to serve the good people of Ondo State as SSA, for the period I was in office Once again, Sir. please accept my appreciation and very high regard.”
It is unclear if the resignation will have any impact on Governor Akeredolu’s re-election as most of the APC leaders are united behind him.
