Speaking during the swearing-in, Mohammed said three of the commissioners were among the six who had previously resigned their appointments to contest for various elective offices in the 2023 general elections.
The governor explained that the three of the former commissioners emerged victorious in their various primaries while the other three could not make it.
He added that with the exit of those six commissioners, a vacuum was created in the State Executive Council, hence, the need to fill the space to have a full complement of the state Executive Council.
“The commissioners that have just been sworn in today have been screened and approved by the State House of Assembly.
“The decision to reappoint those who had earlier resigned their appointments to contest in the party primaries was informed by their commendable record of performance while they served at their various ministries.
“They worked relentlessly towards implementing government policies and programmes and related to their performance is the need for continuity,” the governor said.
He commended their resolve to remain in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after losing in their primaries.
Mohammed also said that the remaining new three commissioners were appointed based on their antecedents and track records.
He, however, urged them to acquaint themselves with the policy thrust of the government for efficient and effective discharge of their duties as members of the State Executive Council.
