Lagos Assembly confirms another Gov. Sanwo-Olu’s nominee

The Lagos State House of Assembly has confirmed another nominee by Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Tolani Sule-Akibu, who was earlier stepped down on Wednesday.

The lawmakers confirmed the nominee through voice votes during plenary presided over by the Deputy Speaker, Mojisola Meranda, on Tuesday.

Mr Sule-Akibu is one of the 18 nominees sent to the House by Sanwo-Olu on Sept. 4.

His confirmation was stepped down by the lawmakers on Wednesday during the plenary.

The lawmakers could not reach an agreement on whether to approve or disapprove his nomination.

However, Ms Meranda said the lawmakers had given their approval to the nomination of Mr Sule-Akibu with a voice vote.

Ms Meranda, thereafter, directed the Clerk of the House, Lekan Onafeko, to write the governor on the confirmation of Sule-Akibu.

In all, 38 nominees have so far been confirmed while two were rejected. No reasons were given for the rejection.
