Edo commissioners to brief assembly on activities next month, says Speaker

By Imelda Osayande
Benin –  The Edo State House of Assembly announced on Wednesday that commissioners in the state would appear before the house next month, to brief the lawmakers on their activities.

The Speaker, Alhaji kabiru Adjoto, made the announcement in Benin at a plenary to mark the end of the third session of the sixth assembly in the state.

“All honourable commissioners are to appear before the house for a ministerial briefing on the activities of their various ministries when the house reconvenes in October.

“The clerk of the house should notify the commissioners and state the date of their appearances,” Adjoto said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Gov. Godwin Obaseki on June 20 sent the list of 18 commissioner-nominees to the house for screening and approval.

The screened commissioners were sworn-in on July 6.

Adjoto said that the legislative quarter, which was earlier billed to end on Aug. 31, was extended by 11 days to accommodate oversight functions of standing committees.

He noted, however, that no bill was passed into law during the period but that two bills were at different stages of consideration.

The speaker disclosed that five petitions were received by the house from members of the public and that 21 resolutions were adopted on various issues. (NAN)
