The Ekiti State House of Assembly will today commence screening of nominees for the post of Special Advisers and Commissioners and then forward to Governor Ayodele Fayose.
This was contained in a statement signed by Wole Olujobi, Special Adviser, Media to the Speaker, Hon. Adewale Omirin, in Ado Ekiti on Monday.
According to the statement, all the 26 members of the State House of Assembly have been contacted on the new development, assuring that the House sitting would be peaceful.
Six members of the All Progressives Congress, APC-dominated Assembly had during Fayose’s inauguration last Thursday defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which fuelled speculation about an alleged plot to remove the Speaker.
