Breaking: Sanwo-Olu transmits final list of commissioners, special advisers to Assembly

 Lagos State Governor Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday, transmitted the final list of his cabinet nominees to the State House of Assembly.
This is coming four weeks after the Governor sent the first batch of the list to the lawmakers for screening.
Thirteen Commissioner- and Special Adviser-designates made the second list, which had already been transmitted to the legislature.
A statement by the Deputy Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, 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.
