The Enugu State House of Assembly on Tuesday approved the appointment of 24 commissioner nominees sent to it by the state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

The nominees were confirmed at the plenary after going through the screening exercise of the House.

Questions relating to their courses of study, profession, experience and on how they would contribute to reposition Enugu State were asked.

The screening which lasted for over five hours featured two former members of the House of Representatives, Princess Peace Nnaji and Mr. Chijioke Edeoga, who were asked to take a bow and leave.

After the screening, the Leader of the house, Mr Ikechukwu Ezeugwu (PDP-Udenu), said: “having answered most of the questions correctly, attempted some and with their experiences, levels of education, contributions to our party, their community and the state, when confirmed, they will do us proud.

“Mr speaker, honourable colleagues, l hereby move that the commissioner-nominees be confirmed,’’ he said.

Ruling, the Speaker, Chief Edward Ubosi, directed the Clerk, Mr Christopher Chkwurah, to communicate the governor of the confirmation of the nominees. (NAN)
