Governor Oshiomhole Swears-In New Commissioners
Governor Oshiomhole shared this view during the swearing-in ceremony of two new Commissioners into his cabinet at the Exco Chambers, Government House in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
The new members of cabinet are Tom Uloko, for Ministry of Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs and Gideon Obhakhan, for the Ministry of Education.
Governor Oshiomhole, earlier in the week, suspended four local government chairmen.
The allegations against them include non-payment of staff salaries without satisfactory explanations, inability to account for Internally Generated Revenue, diversion of funds, failure to follow due process in the award of contracts as well as illegal employment of senior officers without going through Local Government Service Commission, which is a violation of laid-down provisions.
