Newly appointed APC media director rejects position after vice chairman’s resignation

The newly appointed Director of New Media, Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives (APC) Governorship Election Campaign Council, Mr John Mayaki, on Sunday rejected the offer, citing personal reasons for his decision.

He disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Benin and noted that he was honoured to have been considered for the position.

Mayaki explained that the potential impact of his working relationship with someone who he said was initially penciled down for the position further informed his decision.

He said that accepting the position could create an uncomfortable situation, adding that he prioritised maintaining a harmonious work environment.

Mayaki said: “I have communicated my decision to the relevant leaders before the final announcement. As a person of faith, I strive to live by principles that promote peace, integrity, and goodwill.

“I do not wish to hold grudges or engage in actions that could generate bad blood between myself and others. It is essential for me to act in a manner that aligns with my values and fosters positive relationships.”

Mayaki’s rejection comes barely 24 hours after the vice chairman of the APC in Edo State, Francis Inegbeniki, resigned his membership of the party.

Inegbeniki’s resignation was contained in a letter dated June 8, 2024, addressed to the ward chairman of Opoji, Esan Central Local Government,

Inegbeniki said that some recent developments in the party in his local government area and state conflict with his principles and values.

He noted that this has led him to do a serious evaluation of his political future in the state and decide on the way forward.
