15 November 2016, 20:32

Abuja - Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Ita Enang, has presented the list of nominees for the position of commissioners of the National Population Commission.

The nominees are Benedict Ukpong, Gloria Fateya Izonfuo, Barr. Kupchi Patricia Ori Iyanya, Dr Haliru Bala and Dr Eyitayo Oyetunji.

Addressing the Committee on National Identity Card and National Population chaired by Suleiman Hunkuyi, Enang said the nominees had been screened and cleared by securities agencies.

He said the National Council of State has also screened the nominees and found them qualified to hold the positions in which they have been nominated.

Hunkuyi said the duties of the commissioners were encompassing, daunting and forbearing especially as they were expected to conduct the next census at a date yet to be announced.

“Fortunately, their task is guaranteed within the body of our constitution and the importance of their assignment is reflected in the fact that their appointment has to be confirmed by the Senate.”
