Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, transmitted the final list of his cabinet nominees to the State House of Assembly.
People & Politics recall that the Governor sent the first batch of the list to the lawmakers for screening four weeks ago.
Thirteen Commissioner- and Special Adviser-designates made the second list, which had already been transmitted to the legislature.
A statement by the Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, said the second list had names of accomplished politicians and technocrats who “understand the current need of Lagos” and the development agenda of the Governor.
The Governor’s media aide said the selection process was rigorous, because of the need to constitute the best team that would serve Lagos in line with the Sanwo-Olu administration’s vision of delivering a city-state that will rank among the top most liveable cities in the world.
Below are names in the second batch of nominees:
- MR. OLADELE AJAYI
- MR. OLUWATOYIN FAYINKA
- MRS. YETUNDE AROBIEKE
- MR. OLANREWAJU SANUSI
- MR. JOE IGBOKWE
- MR. BONU SOLOMON SAANU
- ARC. KABIRU AHMED
- MRS. LOLA AKANDE
- PRINCE ANOFI OLANREWAJU ELEGUSHI
- MRS. SOLAPE HAMMOND
- MR. MORUF AKINDERU FATAI
- MRS. SHULAMITE OLUFUNKE ADEBOLU
- MR. TOKUNBO WAHA
This list however seals the fate of several local governments that were expecting to have a slot or more in the new Lagos cabinet.
