The state governor, Senator Ben Ayade has sent a request to the State House of Assembly requesting for 30 more advisers.
It would be recalled that before now, Mr Governor had already appointed over 200 aides.
If the House grants the request of the governor, the total number of aides in his cabinet would be over 230, the highest ever in the state.
Some members of the House who spoke with our correspondent about the development expressed worry over how the governor would match the financial implication knowing too well that some of the appointees are still yet to receive their appointment letters and regular statutory salaries.
