Delta State House of Assembly, Tuesday, postponed the screening and confirmation of Dennis Agbaga for re-appointment as a member of the State Judicial Service Commission.
The suspension of the screening exercise by the lawmakers was sequel to what the Speaker, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori attributed to the nominee’s non-adherence to procedural principles.
The laid down procedures, according to the Speaker was for the nominee to first visit his representative for proper identification before appearing at the Hallowed chamber for the exercise.
Apparently unhappy that the nominee flouted the House’s procedure, Rt Hon Oborevwori who is coincidentally the representative of the nominee, asked him to do the needful and reappear before the House on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, for the screening.
Meanwhile, the House at plenary received two separate reports from its Standing Committees.
They include the joint Committee on Special Bills and Committee on Environment, Oil and Gas as well as the joint Committee on Special Bills and House Committee on Transport.
The reports include; Delta State Forfeiture of Property Bill and Delta State Waterways tax Control and Licencing of Boats Repeal and Re-enactment Bill.
Both reports were read on the floor of the House by the Chairman, House Committee on Special Bill, Hon. Princess Pat Ajudua.
The reports have been slated for further deliberation by the Committee of the Whole.
