Respite has finally come to lobbyists and political pundits over appointment of commissioners in Delta state as Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan finally broke the prevailing silence by nominating 21 persons for appointment as commissioners and members of the state executive council.
The governor also asked for the House approval to appoint 12 advisers through a motion moved by the Majority Leader of the House, Monday Igbuya and seconded by Patrick Mozea and unanimously adopted by the House.
Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon Victor Ochei read the names of commissioner nominees on the floor of the House.
