Rivers Assembly Orders Commissioner-Nominees To ‘Take A Bow And Go’.

The Rivers State House of Assembly on Wednesday ordered the nine commissioners who resigned their positions last to ‘take a bow and go.’

On Monday, the parliament led by Rt Hon Martin Amaewhule invited the commissioner-nominees for screening as part of the 8-point peace agenda signed by Governor Sim Fubara of Rivers State and FCT Minister Nyesom Wike following a meeting with President Bola Tinubu in Abuja.

The nominees are: Zacchaeus Adangor, ⁠Jacobson Mbina, Gift Worlu, Mrs. Inime Chinwenwo- Aguma, ⁠Engr. Chukwuemeka Woke.

Others included Prince Chinedu Mmom, ⁠George-Kelly D. Alabo, ⁠Isaac Kamalu and Austin Ben Chioma.

During plenary at the hallowed chamber in the Legislative Quarters, Off PH/Aba Expressway, Port Harcourt, the Speaker read the letter from Governor Siminalayi Fubara, requesting the screening and confirmation of the Commissioner nominees.

The letter dated December 11, 2023 puts to rest any controversy surrounding whether or not the governor made the request.

In his reaction, the Majority Leader of the House, Major Jack moved a motion that because the nominees have been screened before there’s no need to repeat the process as such, they should take a bow and go.

The motion was supported by the deputy speaker, Dumle Maol, hence the lawmakers’ decision for the commissioner-nominees to ‘take a bow and go.’
