The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has sent a second list of cabinet member-nominees to the Lagos State House of Assembly.
This latest development is coming a few weeks after the House confirmed 22 and rejected 17 out of the 39 nominees earlier sent to it for ratification and confirmation.
This is contained in a statement posted to the House’s verified X handle on Monday, 4 September 2023.
According to the statement, the ad hoc committee led by the Chief Whip, Fatai Mojeed, who screened the previous nominees, will also be charge to screen the new set of nominees.
“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,” the statement partly read.
The House’s rejection of the 17 nominees generated debate among politicians and residents of the state.
Following the rejection, the Governance Advisory Council, the apex leadership body of the All Progressives Congress(APC in the state, had to intervene in the matter by appealing to both the governor and the Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, to meet and settle their differences amicably for the progress of the state.
