Sanwo-Olu’s Cabinet Undergoes Renewed Scrutiny: 18 Nominees Face Evaluation

Date:

In a fresh development, Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has submitted a new list of candidates for his cabinet to the Lagos State House of Assembly. This move came after a recent round of approvals and rejections; with the House giving the green light to 22 of the initial 39 nominees.

One notable inclusion in the new list is the former Health Commissioner, Prof. Akin Abayomi, who had been among the 17 nominees rejected earlier.

Once again, the responsibility of scrutinising these nominees lies with the ad hoc committee, led by Chief Whip Fatai Mojeed, which had previously assessed the candidates. The previous rejection of 17 nominees had sparked debates among political circles and the state’s residents.

IReport 247 has learned that the Governance Advisory Council, the top leadership body of the All Progressives Congress(APC) in Lagos, stepped in to mediate the situation. They urged Governor Sanwo-Olu and Speaker Mudashiru Obasa to resolve their differences through a meeting.

This intervention followed Speaker Obasa’s expression of concerns on the House floor regarding threats against him and his colleagues. He cautioned that individuals in glass houses should refrain from throwing stones.

The new list comprises 18 names, which are: Dr. Afolabi Tajudeen, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, Engr. Olalere Odusote, and Mrs. Folashade Ambrose-Medem. It also includes Mr. Olugbenga Omotoso, Mr. Mosopefolu George, and Dr. Iyabode Ayoola, among others.

Governor Sanwo-Olu expressed his appreciation to the Speaker and House members for their diligent work in the recent screening and confirmation of the previous 22 nominees. He noted that their thorough evaluation of these nominees in accordance with their constitutional responsibilities reflects commitment to establishing a capable and efficient council.

The Governor meticulously considered the 17 previously rejected names and opted to present a list that brings together both familiar faces and new individuals. He highlighted that this list mirrors a broad political spectrum and diverse backgrounds; showcasing the rich diversity of the state.

Speaker Obasa has given the screening committee until Thursday, September 7, to deliver their findings to the House.
