Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, will Thursday swear-in commissioners’ nominees who were last week cleared by the House of Assembly.
A press statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary, Mr. John Mayaki, said the swearing-in ceremony will take place at the Old Exco Chambers, Government House, by 1pm.
Those to be sworn-in as Commissioners are Mr. Yekini Idaiye, (Akoko-Edo), Mr Jimoh Ijegbai, (Owan East), Ohionbamu Paul (Egor), Emmanuel Usoh, (Esan North-East), Yinka Omoreigbe, (Oredo), Joseph Ughioke, (Etsako Central), Christopher Adesotu (Ovia Southwest), and Osaze Osemwegie-Ero (Orhionmwon)
Others are: John Inegbedion (Igueben), Monday Osaigbovo (Ovia North-East), Reginald Okun (Owan West), David Osifo (Uhunmwode), Mariam Abubakar (Etsako West), Mika Amonokha (Etsako East).
Also on the list are: Amiolemen Osahon (Esan West), Magdalene Ohenhen (Esan South East), Barrister E. Agbale, (Esan Central) and Erimnona Edoriodion (Ikpoba-Okha).
It was gathered that due to Governor Obaseki commitment to work, the commissioners designate were advised against attending the ceremony with large crowd of supporters.
But Mayaki told our reporter that the state government did not issue any directive as to who to attend.
