Sanwo-Olu sends new list of commissioner nominees to Lagos Assembly
The state House of Assembly has received a new list of commissioner candidates from Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, revealed this on Monday.
The 17 nominees who were rejected by the House, including the outgoing Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi, made the new list.
Obasa announced in a tweet that the Chief Whip Fatai Mojeed-led ad hoc committee will also review the fresh batch of nominees.
His tweet: “Governor’s Nominees for Commissioners: Speaker Obasa calls on the committee that handled the previous nominees to take charge on the new list sent by the Governor, @jidesanwoolu, and report back to the House by Thursday 7/09/2023.
“Some of the nominees have their documents with you, and you can reach out to the new nominees. I want you to be thorough and do the needful while carrying out this exercise.”
A few weeks ago, the House confirmed 22 and rejected 17 out of the 39 nominees Sanwo-Olu sent to the House.
The rejection of the 17 nominees by the House had raised dust among politicians and residents of the state.
