Joe Igbokwe, two ex-commissioners, others make Sanwo-Olu’s new cabinet list
Lagos State governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, transmitted the final list of his cabinet-nominees to the State House of Assembly for screening.
The new list of 13 people, according to a statement by the Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, consists of spokesperson of the state chapter of ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Joe Igbokwe; two former commissioners, including Hon. Lola Akande and Prince Anofi Olanrewaju Elegushi under the immediate past Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, among others.
This is coming four weeks after the governor sent the first batch of the list to the lawmakers for screening.
The statement 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 Sanwo-Olu, adding that the selection process was rigorous, because of the need to constitute the best team that would serve Lagos in line with his administration’s vision of delivering a city-state that will rank among the top most liveable cities in the world.
Other names contained in the list are: Mr. Oladele Ajayi, Mr. Oluwatoyin Fayinka, Mrs. Yetunde Arobieke, Mr. Olanrewaju Sanusi, Mr. Bonu Solomon Saanu, Arc. Kabiru Ahmed and Mrs. Solape Hammond.
The rest are: Mr. Moruf Akinderu, Mrs. Shulamite Olufunke Adebolu and Mr. Tokunbo Wahab.
