Those aides that pulled out are, Honest Imina Unuagbon (SSA LGA), Goodluck Uyigue (SSA Ward 2), Razak Rotimi (SA Ward 7), Victor Olunyomi (SA Ward 8) and Smart Bank (SA Ward 10).
The special assistants in a letter dated Friday, July, 3, explained that the reason for their resignation was based on the ground that they were not ready to defect to the PDP along with the governor.
