Adeniyi Olugbemi, Sokoto
Outgoing lawmakers of the Sokoto State House of Assembly have confirmed the list of commissioner nominees submitted to it by Governor Aminu Tambuwal.
The 26-man list comprises 19 former commissioners and seven new nominees.
Top on the list is the incumbent Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Salihu Maidaji; the immediate past SSG, Prof. Bashir Garba, and a former House of Representatives member, Abdulsamad Dasuki.
The confirmation of the commissioners followed a letter received to that effect from Governor Tambuwal. In the letter, the governor said the appointments were in line with Section 192(I) and (II) of the 1999 Constitution as amended.
The letter was read on the floor of the House by the acting Clerk of the House, Alhaji Abdurazaq Shehu.
The Majority Leader of the House, Garba Yabo, called on the House to dissolve into a committee of a whole for the screening of the nominees.
