Kogi Assembly confirms Kingsley Fanwo as Commissioner

The Kogi State House of Assembly on Wednesday rescreened, cleared and confirmed Mr. Kingsley Fanwo as a Commissioner-nominees presented to the House by Governor Yahaya Bello.

Fanwo’s rescreening was sequel to last week’s deferment by the Speaker of the House, Prince Matthew Kolawole.

Fanwo was initially screened as a Commissioner nominee on January 30, 2020, before he resigned in April to contest for the House of Representatives, Yagba Federal constituency, losing with a margin of two votes to Folusho Olafemi.

Following his failure at the polls, the governor re-sent his name and that of two others to the House as Commissioner nominees.

The Speaker, Matthew Kolawole who corrected the notion that Fanwo’s nomination was rejected by the House last week, said he was only referred to today’s legislative sitting.

He equally asked the members to allow the nominee take a bow and go.

This was seconded by the House members.

A team of Executive arms comprising of the SSG, Mrs Folashade Arike; Commissioners for Finance and Education, Mr Asiru Idris and Wemi Jones; Kofi ALGON chairman, Isa Taofiq and other appointees were at hands to give him solidarity.
