Rivers: Pro-Fubara Assembly Screens, Confirms Iboroma as Commissioner-designate

 

Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Danagogo Iboroma has been screened and confirmed as member of the Rivers State Executive Council.

 

He was confirmed on Monday by the Rivers State House of Assembly led by Victor Oko-Jumbo.

 

The development is coming five days after Oko-Jumbo emerged as the new speaker of the Assembly.

 

He thanked Governor Fubara for providing another location for the Assembly to carry on with its legislative functions pending the time a new chamber is reconstructed. This comes after Governor Fubara issued an Executive Order relocating the sitting of the House of Assembly to the auditorium at the administrative block of the Government House.

 

The decision, according to Governor Fubara, was taken because the current House of Assembly complex in its present state is not safe and constitutes a threat to the lives of the staff and the lawmakers.

 

Danagogo Iboroma, may have been nominated to replace Professor Zaccheus Adangor, who recently resigned as the State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice after he rejected his redeployment to the Ministry of Special Duties; Governor’s Office.

 

Expectedly, the majority of the questions thrown at the Commissioner-nominee border on the issues of loyalty and commitment to service.

 

With the question-and-answer session over, Iboroma was then granted permission to take his leave to allow the lawmakers to deliberate further on his nomination

 

Their deliberations however did not take much time as the Assembly unanimously agreed to confirm his nomination as a member of the Rivers State Executive Council.

 

With the matter of the day concluded, the Assembly immediately adopted a motion moved by the leader to adjourn sitting until Thursday, May 16.
