Citizens to nominate commissioners, advisers in Kwara

24 June 2015, 08:16

Ilorin - The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Kwara, has directed the people of the State to nominate people for the position of Commissioners and Special Advisers.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of APC in the state, Alhaji Sulaiman Buhari, on Tuesday in Ilorin.

He said they are to work with Governor AbdulFatah Ahmed-led administration in the quest to deliver the shared prosperity agenda in the state.

According to guidelines for nomination, three nominees must come from each of the 16 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state.

Out of the three nominees per LGA, there must be at least a female and a youth.

The LGAs are, however, advised to ensure fairness and equity in the nomination process so that all areas within the LGAs are adequately and fairly taken care of.

“In the nomination of potential commissioners and special advisers, the LGAs are advised to consider loyalty, experience, education, competence and integrity”, the statement said.

Meanwhile, the leadership of the party has called for nominations into the LGA caucus of the party.

“Six nominees are expected to be nominated from each LGA, out of which four nominees will be selected and inaugurated into the APC LGA caucus”, the statement said.
