Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo, has sworn in 11 commissioners and two special advisers into the state executive council.

The swearing-in ceremony took place at the government house in Benin, the state capital, on Wednesday,

The new commissioners are Oluwole Iyamu, Obehi Akoria, Joan Osa-Oviawe, Osaze Uzamere, and Monday Osaigbovo.

Others are Marie Edeko, Joseph Eboigbe, Moses Agbukor, Isoken Omo, Andrew Emwanta, and Otse Momoh-Omorogbe.


Crusoe Osagie and Esangbedo Ajose-Adeogun were the two special advisers sworn in.

Addressing the new appointees, Obaseki asked them to ensure transparency and uphold accountability in their different ministries.

The Edo governor said organisational performance scorecards had been developed for each ministry to promote a high performance culture.


He said his administration has no choice but to meet the expectations of the people, adding that the new appointees must be result-oriented.

“We must advocate transparency and uphold accountability in all we do in our respective portfolios. In enthroning a high performance culture, an organisational performance scorecard has been developed for each ministry,” the governor said.

“The scorecard shall track key performance targets and deliverables of each ministry and reports will be demanded on a quarterly basis,”

“A formal assessment of performance targets and results achieved by each ministry shall be conducted. These shall form the basis of further review and linkages to other key human resource processes.


“These illustrious sons and daughters of the state have emerged from a thorough search and screening process that identified them as part of the best and brightest we have.

“As commissioners and special advisers, the heights of people’s expectations of you and the government you represent are unprecedented.

“We have no choice but to meet and deliver on the expectations of the people. As we serve the people, we must become champions of high performance, disciplined in execution and results-oriented.”

In September, Obaseki forwarded the list of commissioners to the state assembly, 10 months after he was inaugurated as the governor of the state for the second time.
