Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has sent a list of commissioner nominees to the state House of Assembly for confirmation as members of his cabinet.
The list came more than seven months after Obaseki was sworn in as Governor on November 12, 2016.
In a letter dated June 19, 2017, and addressed to the Speaker of the House, Dr. Justin Okonoboh, the governor urged the lawmakers to facilitate the confirmation of the nominees.
Contained in the list were nominees drawn from the 18 local government areas of the state.
Shortly after the letter was read during plenary on the floor of House on Tuesday, the Speaker noted that the list had long been expected by the people of the state.
