Lagos Assembly confirms Sanwo-Olu’s 11 nominees

The Lagos State House of Assembly has confirmed Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s nominees for the state Executive Council, Civil Service Commission and the state House of Assembly Service Commission (LAHASCOM).


The Nigeria News Agency reports that the confirmation of the 11 nominees took place through a voice vote conducted during plenary on Thursday.

The Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, explained that the three commissioner-nominees confirmed by the Assembly included Messrs Ganiyu Ayuba, Olugbenga Oyerinde and Bamigbose Martins.

Obasa said that those confirmed for the LAHASCOM included Mr Akeem Bello, a former member of the Eighth Assembly, Mr Kabiru Lawal, a member of the Assembly from 2007–2015 and Mr Richard Osungboye.

He added that the nominees confirmed for the Assembly service commission were Babatunde Seriki, a former member of the Assembly, Avoseh Suuru, Adesina Odeyemi, Mrs Olubunmi Fabanwo, who was confirmed as Chairman and Mr Kamalrudeen Olorunoje.

NAN reports that an eight-man Ad-hoc Committee on Screening of Governor’s Nominees had given its report through its Chairman, Mr Rotimi Abiru, on Monday during plenary.

Abiru stated that all the nominees were screened by the committee on Dec. 13, 2019, and that they all answered the questions put to them satisfactorily and provided all the necessary documents.

The report of the committee was, however, adopted as the resolution of the Assembly, while motion for its adoption was moved by Mr Abiodun Tobun, supported by Mr Victor Akande.

NAN recalls that the Assembly had, on Aug. 16, 2019, rejected three of the cabinet nominees presented to it for approval by Sanwo-Olu, thus necessitating their replacements.

Those rejected by the Assembly then included Mr Ajayi Bembe, Mr George Obafemi and Prince Olanrewaju Sanusi.
