Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has appointed and forwarded names of 18 new commissioner nominees to the Delta State House of Assembly for screening and confirmation as members of the State Executive Council.
Among appointed by the governor is the former member of the House of Representatives representing Okpe, Sapele and Uvwie Federal Constituency, Hon. Evelyn Oboro.
Governor also appointed some immediate past commissioners including the former commissioner, Mr Charles Aniagwu.
Others nominated as commissioners include; Dr. Barry Gbe, Hon. Julius Egbedi, Mr. Ifeanyi Egwuyenga, Chief Arthur Akpowowo, Chief Festus Ochonogor, Mrs. Flora Alanta, Mr. Churchill Amagada, Engineer Jonathan Ukodhiko and Engineer Noel Omordon.
Also nominated are; Chief Fidelis Tilije, Mrs Rose Esenwu, Engineer Lawrence Ejiofor, Princess Shola Ogbemi-Daibo, Mr. Chris Onogba, Barrister Kate Oniawan and Mr. Johnbull Edema.
The names of the commissioners-designate were read by the Delta Assembly Speaker, Sheriff Oborevwori, during Thursday plenary.
Following the adoption of the governor’s letter, the House directed nominees to submit twenty-five copies of their CV to the office of the Clerk on or before June 21, and to appear for screening on June 22, 2021.
This is coming barely a month after the governor dissolved the State Executive Council and relieved commissioners and other appointees of their position ahead of the 2023 governorship election in the state.
