Rejected By Buhari’s Cabal, Prof. Julius Ihonvbere Heads Obaseki’s 19-Member Transition Committee

Ahead of the November 12, 2016 swearing-in of the governor-elect of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, of the All Progressives Congress(APC), the state government has set up a 19-member transition committee headed by the Secretary to Edo State Government, Professor Julius Ihonvbere.

Ihonvere was among the ambassadorial nominee that was rejected by the President Muhamamdu Buhari cabal, Ikenga Chronicles reliably gathered

The out-going Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole had submitted the professor’s name, but it was replaced by the presidency.

This announcement came as the APC in the state described as laughable, claims by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it was evading being served court processes, saying that after a strenuous campaign for the governorship election, the leadership of the party was expected to take a rest.

Adams Oshiomhole, will on November 12, hand over power to his successor, Obaseki, who defeated his closest rival in the September 28 governorship election, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu of the PDP.

Other members of the committee are: Mr. Henry Idahagbon, Mr. Osarodion Ogie, Mr. John Inegbedion, Dr. Aihanuwa Eregie and Prince Joe Okojie.

Others are: Mr Igbinidu Inneh, Mr Joseph Eboigbe, Mr Taiwo Akerele, Senator Domingo Obende, Dr. Aisosa Amadasun, Reverend Emmanuel Egharevba, Elder Pius Omofuma, Mr. Theo Okoh, Mr Ben Ogbebor, Mrs Magdalene Ogbebulu, Mrs. Benedicta Attoh, Mr. Osaze Ojo, and Mr. Ahmed Mamudu.

The committee has constituted in spite of the allegation by the PDP that the Edo governorship election was marred with irregularities.

The party and its governorship candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, has proceeded to the tribunal to challenge the results of the September 29 poll won by Mr. Obaseki.
