The Lagos State House of Assembly says its decision to reject 17 out of 39 cabinet nominees sent by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu will not be rescinded.
The House had last Wednesday confirmed 22 of the nominees, but rejected the 17 others.
The nominees who were not confirmed include: Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, Prof. Akin Abayomi, Mr. Yomi Oluyomi, Mrs. Folashade Ambrose, Ms. Barakat Bakare, Mr. Gbenga Omotosho, Engr. Olalere Odusote; Dr. Rotimi Fashola, Mrs. Bolaji Cecilia Dada, Mr. Sam Egube; Mr. Olalekan Fatodu, Mrs. Solape Hammond, Mr. Mosopefolu George, Engr. Aramide Adeyoye, Mr. Seun Osiyemi, Mr. Rotimi Ogunwuyi, Dr. Olumide Oluyinka.
The House said the decision to reject the nominees was based on the outcome of a rigorous and detailed screening by an ad-hoc committee led by the Chief Whip of the House, Hon. Fatai Mojeed.
Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, said the House would continue to do its job and carry out its oversight function.
“We will continue to do our job, we will continue to do our oversight function,” Obasa said.
He urged the confirmed nominees to always remember that they are in office to serve the people of the State and not individuals.
