The Speaker, Justin Okonoboh requested the nominees to submit 30 copies of their credentials to the house for screening.
Meanwhile, Edo State Grazing Bill has scaled through second reading after deliberation by the lawmakers.
Chief sponsor of the Bill, Bright Osayande who was supported by majorly of the members said the bill was long overdue considering the atrocities herdsmen have allegedly perpetrated across the state and the issue needed to be nipped in the bud.
Some other members also called for public hearing so as to give opportunity to Edo people to contribute as the menace has not only become security risk but has assumed a freighting dimension.
The speaker, Justin Okonoboh who said the bill would not have come at a better time than now also reconstituted the house committees which were earlier dissolved.
