According to The Punch, a former deputy governor of Enugu State, Mr. Sunday Onyebuchi, has been redeployed to the state civil service. A source in the Government House informed our correspondent that the development followed Onyebuchi’s impeachment, and the subsequent appointment of a new deputy governor.

Onyebuchi was a staff of the Enugu State Civil Service before his appointment to political office.

The text message reads, “Former Deputy Governor Onyebuchi has been redeployed to the State Civil Service where he was serving before being appointed to higher political offices.”
