Governor Godwin Obaseki
Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has directed wards and local government areas in the state to submit names to be nominated as members of his cabinet, seven months after his inauguration.
Addressing state house correspondents on Wednesday after a meeting with the chief of staff to the president, Professor Ibrahim Gambari, Governor Obaseki explained that he delayed in naming members of his cabinet because of the restructuring of the state civil service in order to make it more efficient.
He said having restructured the civil service and introduced technology, he is now ready for the political class to give the needed political direction to the administration.
Meanwhile, the governor also discussed the return of the stolen Benin artifacts with the Chief of Staff.
He revealed plans to set up a Museum in the state, which according to him, after completion would be a major tourist attraction and revenue spinner.
