The speaker said Soludo also sent another letter requesting the confirmation of 15 nominees for the post of Special Advisers.

The Speaker, however, asked the House Committee on Screening to duly screen the commissioner-nominees.

The majority leader moved a motion for the confirmation of the 15 special advisers and they were approved after a voice vote.

Also at the plenary, the House read a resolution asking Soludo to urge the Commissioner of Police to return checkpoints and patrol teams across the state.

The House resolution followed a motion raised by a member, Onyebuchi Offor, representing Ekwusigo  Constituency.

According to Offor, the absence of the checkpoints had increased insecurity which is causing serious threat to lives and property in the state.
