Others who were retained are Commissioner for Finance, David Olofu; Commissioner for Health and Hunan Services, Dr Joseph Ngbea; Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Dennis Ekpe Ogbu and Commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs Nylazungwe Igirgi.

A statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Professor Tony Ijohor, sighted by our correspondent, noted that the governor had forwarded a list of commissioner-nominees to the State Assembly.

Some of the names sent to the assembly include Ternar Jester Kyange, Unngwa Sechia Jude, Agbatar Rodney Williams and Michael Umoru Inalegwu.
