Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Tony Adibe, Enugu From Bola Ojuola, Akure

Six months af­ter tak­ing over man­tle of lead­er­ship, Gov­er­nor Ro­timi Ak­eredolu of Ondo State has fi­nally made pub­lic names of 18 com­mis­sion­ers that will serve un­der him. The list of the nom­i­nees, which in­cluded Yemi Olowolabi, the son of a for­mer gov­er­nor of The gov­er­nor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ug­wuanyi, yes­ter­day sent names of three new com­mis­sioner nom­i­nees to the state house of as­sem­bly for screen­ing and con­fir­ma­tion.

Those nom­i­nated by the gov­er­nor in­cluded Mr Ge­of­frey Emeka Ede, Dr. Foun­tain Chuk­wue­meka Ekochin and Engr. Aloy­sius Sun­day Og­bodo.

Also, Gov­er­nor Ug­wuanyi has sent the name of Mr Sa­muel Okechukwu Ngene to be cleared as mem­ber of the Enugu State In­de­pen­dent Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (ENSIEC).

Leader of the House, Ikechukwu Ezeugwu, en­joined his col­leagues to ac­cept the gov­er­nor’s let­ter for the con­fir­ma­tion of the nom­i­nees.

How­ever, it was gath­ered that a for­mer com­mis­sioner des­ig­nate, Dr. Dona­tus Ani, who had been cleared by the House was not given any port­fo­lio be­cause his peo­ple of Enugu South Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area were al­legedly averse to his ap­point­ment, hence Ug­wuanyi was forced to ap­point a re­place­ment.
