Contrary to gist making the rounds that the Cross River State House of Assembly, CRSHA, levied the 28 Commissioner-nominees, N1 million each as screening fees, Speaker of the House, John Gaul Lebo has exclusively informed www.calitown.com that no such demand was made or money collected from the nominees under any guise.
When he spoke with www.calitown.com, Lebo came clear that he “…made it a policy that the House will not demand or collect money from the nominees. That was why I refused to allow the screening to go to the Committee on Judiciary; I was scared of a situation like this, because they would have demanded for cash”.
He went on to say that, “most members had a hand in nominating their Commissioners and they‘re friends. The House of Assembly in its Executive session unanimously resolved to adopt an open screening policy, taking on nominees on the floor of the House and beamed it live on CRBC to ensure transparency”.
No nominees he insisted was grilled at the Committee stage or outside the floor of the House, “even former Assembly members including the immediate past Deputy Speaker appeared on the floor of the House”, wondering how anybody or group of persons would imagine that such a transparent process could have been driven by any form of financial demand(s). The nominees look certain to be sworn-in next week.
