The appointment of Timothy Ojoma as the new Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources has been approved by the Kogi State House of Assembly.
The clearance was given by the 8th Assembly on Wednesday in Lokoja at the house plenary.
Ojoma succeeds former Commissioner David Apeh, who was fired by Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello for anti-party activities.
Yahaya Bello, the governor of Kogi State, submitted his name to the house for the Assembly’s consideration.
Ojoma has what it takes to drive the ministry forward, according to Comfort Nwuchiola, a member representing the Ibaji State Constituency, who spoke during the Commissioner’s screening.
She requested in her presentation that the nominee for the Commissioner take a bow and leave, and members of the house agreed.
The recently appointed Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources indicated in a conversation with Kogi State House of Assembly Correspondents that he would assure mechanized agriculture as opposed to subsistence practice in the State.
He vowed to increase food security while in power.
