The Lagos State House of Assembly on Thursday finally confirmed the 37 cabinet nominees of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for the state Executive Council.
The confirmation, which took place during plenary was preceded by the presentation of a report of the 15-man committee, headed by Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni, the Deputy Speaker of the House, set up to screen the nominees.
Eshinlokun revealed that all the nominees were invited by the committee and that they all submitted copies of their resumes and certificates.
He also said the documents submitted were thoroughly verified by the committee, which sat for one week from 5 Monday to 9 October, 2015.
Speaker of the House, Mudashiru Obasa, asked the Clerk of the House, Mr. Segun Abiru, to send a letter to the governor indicating that the nominees have been confirmed by the House.
The report was however taken after the House embarked on a general screening of the House in which the nominees were simply asked to introduce themselves and explain how they were treated by the committees last week.
