The Edo State House of Assembly has confirmed 11 commissioner designates sent to it by the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, for screening and confirmation.

The confirmation followed a letter from governor Obaseki on September 28 to the House’s speaker, requesting the screening and confirmation of the nominees as commissioners in the state.

At the plenary on Monday, the Chairman House Committee on Rules, Business and Government House, Henry Okhuarobo, presented the report of the committee on the screened nominees to the House for consideration.

He said the nominees are competent, relatively young and physically fit for the state assignment.

According to the committee, having been found to be eligible, the nominees should be confirmed as commissioners in the state.

The House thereafter unanimously, in a voice vote, confirmed the nominees as commissioners in Edo.

The nominees are, Oluwole Osamudiamen lyamu (Oredo LGA), Prof. Obehi Akoria (Esan West), Dr Joan Oviawe (Uhumwode) Ethan Uzamere(Ovia South West) and Monday Osaigbovo (Ovia North-East),
