Funke Egbemode, president of the Nigerian Guild of Editors, NGE and 34others, nominated as commissioners in Osun, have been confirmed by the state House of Assembly.
The confirmation was made on Wednesday with the unanimous adoption by all the members, a motion to that effect by Majority Leader of the House, Moruf Olanrewaju.
The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Mr Timothy Owoeye, who spoke on the confirmation at plenary, described the new commissioners as eminently qualified to help grow the state.
He enjoined them to join hands with the state governor, Gboyega Oyetola, to ensure the development of the state.
Recall that the list of the nominees was submitted in September on behalf of the governor by the Secretary to the State Government, Wole Oyebamiji while the governor was on the entourage of President Muhammadu Buhari to the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
