Benin - The Edo House of Assembly on Monday confirmed 18 out of the 19 commissioner-nominees sent to it by Gov Adams Oshiomhole.

They are Messrs Louis Odion; Abdul Oroh; Clem Agba; Chris Ebare and Francis Evbomwan.

Others are John Inegbedion; Lucky James; Ekpenisi Omorotionmwan and Donald Osikhena.

The list also includes Messrs Patrick Agwinede; Henry Idahagbon; Blessing Maigida; Macdonald Obasuke and Osarodion Ogie.

The rest are Omo- Ojo Orobosa; Osifo Omerede Osemede; Lawrence Aghedo and Isimeme Iriogbe.

The confirmation followed the screening and clearance by the House Committee on Rules and Business and Government House chaired by Mr Philip Shaibu (ACN, Etsako West 11).

Shaibu had earlier said that the only nominee not screened, Mrs Anena Elizabeth Jemitola, neither submitted her credentials nor presented herself for screening.

He said that members of the committee drilled the nominees and found them worthy persons, both academically and in character, adding that allegations against some of them were found to be untrue.
