Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has lifted the suspension on the Chairperson of Egor Local Government Area, Eghe Ogbemudia.

A statement on Monday by the governor’s spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, said Ogbemudia’s suspension was lifted after an investigative panel cleared her of the accusations that led to her suspension.

Mr Osagie said Ogbemudia was suspended after several petitions were written against her by officials of the council, alleging financial misappropriation and abuse of power.

“The cases brought against her have been reviewed and she has been cleared of the allegations, thus her reinstatement. She is to resume office immediately,” he said.

The spokesman added that the reinstatement would provide her the opportunity to continue in repositioning the council in line with the vision of the Obaseki-led administration of efficient management.
