Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has approved the appointment of Osaze Ethan Uzamere, as his Chief of Staff.

In a statement, Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie, said the appointment takes immediate effect.

Osaze is the son of Senator Ehigie Uzamere, who represented Edo South Senatorial District in the National Assembly between 2007 and 2011.

An investment banker, Uzamere, 38, is a graduate of Stony Brook University, New York, where he majored in Computer and Electrical Engineering.

He has had stints with Lehman Brothers and South Grade Engineering, among others.

A thorough-bred professional, he had, before his appointment, served as Executive Assistant to Governor Obaseki.

The Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, had earlier said the Governor was yet to receive any official communication of the resignation of the Chief of Staff, Mr. Taiwo Akerele.

He said that the story had only been doing the rounds on the social media.

In a statement, Osagie said: “In the past few hours, it emerged on social media that the Chief of Staff, Mr. Taiwo Akerele, has resigned his appointment with the Edo State Government.

“While the governor has not received any formal communication to this effect, he believes that this is a personal decision of Mr. Akerele.

“However, whenever the resignation letter gets to the governor, he would accept it, and he wishes Akerele all the best in his future endeavours.”
