The Lagos house of assembly on Wednesday declined to confirm 17 out of 39 commissioner nominees recommended by Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state.

On July 28, Sanwo-Olu sent the list containing names of 39 nominees being considered as commissioners and special advisers-designate in his cabinet. At the plenary on Wednesday, only 22 of the nominees were confirmed by the lawmakers while the remaining ones were declined. The nominees had earlier appeared before the state assembly for screening — answering questions relating to their areas of specialisation and credentials.The former commissioners are Gbenga Omotoso (information and strategy), Akin Abayomi (health), Cecilia Dada (Women affairs and poverty alleviation), Olalere Odusote (energy resources) Folashade Adefisayo (education), and Sam Egube (economic planning and budget).

Former special advisers, including Solape Hammond and Aramide Adeyoye, were also dropped by the assembly.
