The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, on Tuesday, inaugurated a 15-man committee to screen political nominees that will be appointed into his cabinet.

Obaseki, during the inauguration at the Government House, Benin City, urged the committee, headed by Prof. Dennis Agbonlahhor, to submit its report on or before the 15th of July, 2021.

Members of the Committee include Gen. Airende (retd.), Abass Yakubu, Bayo Ogedengbe, Abubakar Mustapha, Akhere Ugbesia, Prof. Okogbo Felix and M.I. Ijeghede.

Others are Osayamwanbor Agbons, Matthew Iduoriyekemwen, Dr Bob Osazee, Prof. Maureen Isoken Ebomoyi, Prof. Ahmed Uwubamwen, Hillary Otsu and Pastor Osagiede Joseph.

He said, “We have passed that stage where people just come into the government for the sake of it; you are coming for a purpose and must be equipped to deliver on that purpose.

“We have gone round the state and asked wards and local governments to submit nominations. We have collected names and received petitions from some people expressing how happy or unhappy they were; we have received all of these and passed them on to you.

“When you make your recommendations, we then select those that we need to select; we are running a very transparent selection process. I don’t have one name; the people have gone through the process.

“We have a lot of trust and confidence that you will do a great job for us. We believe that in the next two to three weeks, you will come with what we can work with.”

The  chairman of the committee, Agbonlahor said, “We will try as much as possible to deliver on our mandate within the stipulated time.”
