Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, yesterday, appointed seven members into the state executive council to revitalise the administration’s effort towards improving good governance and service delivery.
The new members were appointed into the cabinet-ranked of special advisers. They were sworn in at the state Banquet Hall in Alausa.
Five of the appointees are newcomers, who filled in vacant positions, following the voluntary resignation of previous occupants while two, who previously resigned from the cabinet, were returned to take back their positions.
Sanwo-Olu said his government considered seamless continuity in governance important, as he charged the new cabinet members to hit the ground running in delivering more electoral promises of the administration to the residents.
The governor said the new cabinet appointment further reinforced the established tradition of diversity and inclusiveness, stressing that the choice of the appointees was informed by capacity, accomplishments, commitment and proven-track record of hard work and professionalism in their previous endeavours.
