Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has recalled the suspended Chairman of Port Harcourt City Local Government, Victor Ihunwo after over nine weeks.
Wike had suspended Ihunwo over illegal tax collection, even as the Association of Local Government of Nigeria in the State had appealed to the governor to recall its member.
The development was contained in a statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Tammy Danagogo, in Port Harcourt on Monday.
The governor in the statement warned the reinstated council boss to desist from engaging in illegal or double taxation and any activity that runs against public interest.
The statement partly read, “The Chairman is to resume normal duties immediately, and has been strictly warned to abide by all the rules governing local government administration.
“He is further warned to desist from engaging in all forms of illegal or double taxation or any other acts against public interest.”
