LAGOS STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY REJECTS THREE COMMISSIONER-NOMINEES

Date:

In a surprising turn of events, the Lagos State House of Assembly has rejected three out of the 18 commissioner-nominees put forward by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. Despite the intervention of political elders in Lagos, the Assembly confirmed 15 of the nominees. This decision was reached after Hon. Mojeed Fatai, Chief Whip and chairman of the screening committee, presented a report on the screening exercise.

During the session presided over by Speaker Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, the lawmakers voted against the confirmation of Olalere Odusote, Mr. Samuel Egube, and Hon. Tolani Sule Akibu. The House also decided to defer the confirmation of Hon. Tolani Sule Akibu for a later date.

Speaker Obasa commended the committee for their thorough scrutiny of the nominees, a sentiment echoed by the other lawmakers in attendance. Among those successfully confirmed were Dr. Afolabi Abiodun Tajudeen, Mr. Oluwaseun Oriyomi Osiyemi, Prof. Akinola Emmanuel Abayomi, Dr. Oluwarotimi Omotola Wahab Fashola, Mrs. Folashade Kaosarat Ambrose-Medem, Mrs. Akinyemi Bankole Ajigbotafe, and Mrs. Bolaji Cécilia Dada.

The list of confirmed nominees also included Mrs. Barakat Akande Bakare, Mr. Olugbenga Omotosho, Mr. Mosopefoluwa George, Dr. Yekini Nurudeen Agbaje, Dr. Olumide Oluyinka, Mr. Abayomi Samson Oluyomi, Dr. Iyabode Oyeyemi Ayoola, and Hon. Sola Shakirudeen Giwa.
