Indications emerged Tuesday, that Governor Emmanuel Udom has concluded to re-jig his cabinet and bring in new individuals as commissioners, within and outside the political circle.

According to AbujaCityJournal findings, no fewer than four existing commissioners would be dropped and replaced with new set of people, whose names have been sent to the House of Assembly as nominees.

The names of the nominees include: Uko Essien Udom, SAN, Idongesit Etiebet, John James Etim, Pastor Umoh Eno.

Governor Udom also forwarded the list of Commissioner and Special Adviser Nominees to the Akwa Ibom state House of Assembly for screening and confirmation.

This is the second time the governor has reshuffled his cabinet after resuming office in May 2020.

However, the speaker of Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Hon  Antietam Bassey, who read out the names during Tuesday’s plenary, referred the list to the House Committee on Judiciary, Justice, Human Rights and Public Petitions for further legislative action.

The committee was given two days to complete the assignment and report back to the house.
