The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has extolled former Secretary to Edo State Government and Head of Service, late Dr. Simon Imuekemhe, for contributing to the development of the civil service in the state.

Speaking at a requiem mass held in honour of late Imuekemhe, Obaseki who was represented by the State Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, described late Imuekemhe as an encyclopedia of Edo State civil and public service. 

He said, "We always consulted him on matters that had to do with the civil service in our state and he offered his honest advice without bias. He left behind solid legacy in our civil and public service for which he would ever be remembered. Our hearts are with the family and the Ikabigbo people of Uzaiure." 

In his homily, Bishop of Catholic Diocese of Auchi, Most Rev Dr Gabriel Dunia, said Imuekemhe lived a successful and fulfilled life as a Christian and technocrat in government, touching many lives and positively impacted his community, Ikabigbo.

Other dignitaries at the event include former Edo State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole; former Commissioner for Youths, Hon. Damian Lawani; Commissioner for Education, Hon. (Barr.) Jimoh Ijegbai, amongst others.
