Wonders As Gov. Uduaghan Nominates Dead Man For Board Appointment


How is that possible? You may ask, yes, it is possible because it did happen at  the legislative chamber of the Delta State House of Assembly on Tuesday. The Delta state house of assembly witnessed a mild but shocking drama, as one of the seven persons nominated to be appointed into Delta State Tourism Board by Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, was discovered to be deceased. Could it be the outgoing governor is so engrossed in his pursuit of a slot in the senate in the 2015 elections that he is not that focused in the present task of governing the state?

The governor had sent the seven nominees to the House for confirmation, namely, Efe Afe, Peter Okolotu, Hyacinth Iyere, James Youmu, Amah Agbajoh, Abel Eyube and Joe Morgan.

However, during the screening, when the fourth nominee on the list, James Youmu, was called up, Efe Afe, who was screened as chairman of the board and a former member of the House, drew the attention of the House that James Youmu had since died even before the names were sent to the House.
