The Edo State House of Assembly on Wednesday confirmed the appointments of 18 nominees as commissioners in the state.
Recall that Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki submitted an 18-man list on June 20 to the house for confirmation.
The confirmation of the nominees followed the recommendation of the House Committee on Rules, Business and Government House.
Presenting the report, the chairman of the committee and Majority Leader, Mr Foly Ogedengbe, said the nominees were educationally qualified to be appointed as commissioners in the state.
Ogedengbe thereafter presented the report to the House for consideration.
The House consequently adopted the report of the committee and confirmed the nominees as commissioners.
Meanwhile, the House is to hold a Public Hearing on a bill for a law to enact Edo State Control of Nomadic Cattle Rearing/Grazing Law scheduled on July 6.
