Published

Kogi House of Assembly  on Tuesday screened, cleared and confirmed for appointment, 16 out of 17 commissioner-nominees presented to the House by Gov. Yahaya Bello.

Nigeria News Agency reports that their screening was sequel to receipt of list of nominees from the governor to the legislature presented by Speaker of the House, Prince Matthew Kolawole in Lokoja.

NAN reports that the nominees who took their turns in answering questions from the legislators were placed on oath by the Clerk of the House, Alhaji Ibrahim Amoka, before their screening.

The 17 commissioner nominees comprised of five former commissioners and one female, Hajia Fatima Kabir Buba, from Lokoja Local Government Area.

However, one of the nominees, Mr Salami Momodu Ozigi, had his screening stepped down and rescheduled over complications in the name transmitted to the Assembly which read, Abdulsalam Ozigi Deedat.

The Speaker,  Kolawole, pointed out that since the name on the transmitted list was different from the names contained in the nominee’s curriculum vitae, there was need for clarification.

Kolawole urged the 16 confirmed commissioners to live above board by working to justify their appointments.

Meanwhile, some of the commissioners who spoke to newsmen after the exercise promised to deliver in line with the new direction of the administration.

The confirmed nominees include Gabriel Olofu, Victor Omofaiye, Mohammed Sani Ibrahim (SAN), Idris Asiru, Engr. Abubakar Ohere, David Apeh, Baron Okwoli, Daniel O. Ejigbo and Idris Musa.

Others are Wemi Jones Ojo, Kingsley Fanwo, Isah Idachaba, Abdulmuminu Danga, Dr Saka Haruna, Hajia Fatima Kabir Buba and Abubakar Mohammed Bashir.
