Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has reinstated Professor Julius Ihonvbere as the Secretary to the State Government.
Ihonvbere had resigned his appointment on December 9 as SSG in response to his defeat at the senatorial primary election of the All Progressives Congress ticket for Edo North senatorial district. He was reported to have interpreted his defeat as a deliberate attempt by the state governor to humiliate.
However, Mr. Oshiomhole in a statement on Tuesday, explained that Ihonvbere’s reinstatement followed the review and resolution of the issues surrounding his resignation two weeks ago.
He also stated that the professor’s reinstatement was with immediate effect.
