“We are not against the governor making appointments but what we are contending is that the appointments did not pass though the constitutional House screening.
“The governor, after this dissolution, can still re-appoint them and present them for screening,” he said.
Nwazunku also said the governor should submit to the House all financial details of the federal allocation, internally generated revenue and all funds accruable to the state from January 1 to December 31, 2014.
“The dissolved caretaker committees should submit all relevant government’s documents in their possession to the Heads of Personnel Management (HPM) before close of work on Tuesday while the governor should submit the financial details before January 9.
