The Speaker of the House Oladiji said the excercise is in line with the constitution charging the newly Commissioner designates to join hands with the governor to take the State to the next level.

While congratulating them, he enjoined the designates to contribute their quotas to the development of the State and the people.

The Speaker hinted that Mrs. Omowumi Isaac, who is the sixth nominee sent to the house was unavoidably absent and did attend the screening, saying she will be screened at a later date for possible clearance.
