The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday 13th August, 2019 sent the final list of his cabinet nominees to the State House of Assembly.
Thirteen Commissioner and Special Adviser designates made the second list, which had already been transmitted to the legislature. It is worthy of note that the governor had earlier sent the first batch of the list for screening and ratification.
The Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, said the second list comprises politicians and technocrats who understood the current need of Lagos and the developmental agenda of His Excellency.
He continued, “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 livable cities in the world.
Here are the names in the second batch of nominees:
- MR. OLADELE AJAYI
- MR. MORUF AKINDERU FATAI
- MRS. SHULAMITE OLUFUNKE ADEBOLU
- MR. TOKUNBO WAHA

However, politicians and other technocrats in the party whose Local Government Area (LGA) were not considered had not been pleased with the governor’s selection. These councils according to them contributed immensely to the success of the party most especially at the last gubernatorial polls and should be considered.
