Jalingo - The Taraba House of Assembly on Tuesday in Jalingo screened and approved six commissioner-nominees sent to the House by the Acting Governor Garba Umar.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Umar on Monday submitted the names of Batulu Mohammed, Musa Tende, Mathias Danazumi, Iliya Ali, Ate Sale, and Sa'adu Shehu to the House for screening and ratification.
The nominees were collectively screened and cleared for appointment as commissioners by the legislature.
The Speaker, Josiah Kente, urged the nominees to be diligent and upright in carrying out their responsibilities to the people of the state.
NAN recalls that six commissioners were sacked in July for allegedly mismanaging the N400 million Federal Government grant for flood victims.
