All Progressive Congress, Peoples Democratic Party Clash Over Kwara Commissioner Nominees List

The All Progressive Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State have clashed over the commissioner-nominees list forwarded to the House of Assembly for screening.
Reacting to the development, the opposition PDP in a statement by its publicity secretary, Prince Tunji Morounfoye, described the transmission of the commissioner-nominees’ list to the House as deceitful.
The statement noted that governors must constitutionally submit names of nominees for confirmation to the House within sixty days of their oath of office.
However, the state publicity secretary of the APC, Alhaji Tajudeen Folaranmi Aro, in a reaction Friday, said the House had the prerogative to determine the timeline for screening and confirmation of the nominees after confirming the receipt of the governor’s list.
He said the PDP was seeking to profit unduly from the development to whip up sentiment.
