Former Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly and Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council of Tayo Akpata University of Education, Thomas Okosun, has exited Governor Godwin Obaseki-led government.
His resignation as chairman of the council was contained in a letter to governor.
The letter by Okosun, an ally of former Governor Adams Oshiomhole, is regarded as political amid the rumored no lost love between the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Obaseki.
Okosun lamented alleged neglect of the university, which was set up by the former administration of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
He explained that his decision was to enable him focus on other “very important personal matters for now as the university, unfortunately, has not taken off as earlier envisaged”.
“Let me use this opportunity to thank Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who offered me the appointment and your humble self for allowing me to continue in office since you assumed office on November 12, 2016.”
Oshiomhole had upgraded the then College of Education to a university.
But the institution has not commenced activities since Obaseki became governor.
