Obaseki drops two female commissioners from Owan


The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has commenced move to reconstitutes his cabinet which was dissolved a month ago without official reasons.

Conspicuously missing from the list of the new commissioners submitted to the state assembly for screening and confirmation were the names of Hon. Afishetu Braimoh and Hon. Omololu Ojekhomoh.

While Hon. Afie Braimoh hails from Owan East, Hon. Ojekhomeoh is from Owan West.

The duo of Hon. Patrick Uanseru, from Owan East, replaced Hon. Braimoh while Hon. Uyi Oduwa Malaka, also a female from Owan West, replaced Hon. Ojekhomoh.

In particular, political pundits criticized the governor for dropping the two female commissioners, especially Hon. Braimoh, whom they argued served the state meritoriously in her capacity,.

Hon. Braimoh was the commissioner of Business, Trade, and Cooperatives and she is on record as having made mincemeat of her tough portfolio, rolling out a series of landmark policies in support of the local MSMEs as well as the promotion of the “Made in Edo” policy of the state government

Her inspiring work as a commissioner attracted both local and national attention to the extent that stakeholders in the industry were benumbed by her uncommon zeal and approach. In no time, she was showered with industry awards and accolades
