The successful screening of commissioner nominees by Edo State House of Assembly awaiting Inauguration by Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has been described as a step in the right direction.
Some respondents, who spoke on public expectations of the commissioners designates harped on the need for the new political appointees to leave above board in attracting dividends of democracy to the people.
Few days ago Edo state house of Assembly successfully screened the eighteen commissioner designates brought before it by the executive arm of Government.
After the screening the political appointees are expected to be giving portfolios by attaching them to various ministries and parastatals.
Against this backdrop the respondents who hailed the development said much is expected from the commissioner designates, pointing out that experiences must be brought to bare while discharging their functions as commissioners.
They said critical areas affecting the day to day living of the people must be overhauled to give a better living for the people.
The respondents who said the commissioner designates should see their appointments as a clarion call not to witch hunt oppositions, added that they must complement the efforts of the state Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki to achieve the desired goal for the state.
The Eighteen commissioner designates will soon be inaugurated by the state Governor Mr Godwin Obaseki
