The Rivers State House of Assembly led by Victor Oko-Jumbo, has screened and confirmed Dagogo Iboroma, a commissioner nominee sent to it by Governor Siminalayi Fubara.

 

The event was the first legislative session since the election of new principal officers, and the Speaker, Victor Oko-Jumbo backed by lawmakers supporting Governor Fubara of Rivers State.

 

A motion was moved by a leader of the house, Sokari Goodboy, to adopt the auditorium as the new chamber, allowing the speaker to read Governor Fubara’s request for the screening and confirmation of 60-year-old Dagogo Iboroma as a commissioner in his cabinet.

 

This comes as human rights lawyer Femi Falana (SAN), faulted Fubara for directing members of the state assembly to meet at the Government House, saying the legislature was independent of the executive.
