The Commissioner for Communication and Orientation in Edo State, Paul Ohonbamu, has resigned.
The Special Adviser to Governor Godwin Obaseki on Media and Communication Strategy, Crusoe Osagie, confirmed this to reporters on Thursday.
Thereafter, the governor approved the appointment of Stewart Efe to replace the former commissioner.
A statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie, said the appointment of Efe was with immediate effect.
Until his appointment, the new commissioner was the Public Relations Officer at the Federal Neuro–psychiatric Hospital, Uselu in Benin City, the state capital.
Efe contested the chairmanship position in Egor Local Government Area during the last local government elections but stepped down for party interest.
