Mr. Anslem Ojezua, chairman of the faction loyal to governor Obaseki, revealed this recently in Benin.
According to him, it was no surprise to see the governor resign but he is still very much saddened by the development.
He added that the state working committee will meet very soon and put out a statement that addresses the new reality.
His words, “It didn’t come to us as a surprise though I am very saddened by the development. I think APC has lost a huge asset,”.
”After he was disqualified, I suspected he will resign and after his disqualification, our leaders asked him to seek another platform to actualise his ambition,”
”The state working committee is meeting tomorrow and after our meeting, we will make a statement. But for me, I have tenure because I was elected. I am in Court over that and would be pursuing it to a logical conclusion.”.
