The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has reassigned portfolios to two members of his cabinet.

The governor announced the change in designations on Friday at the ongoing 2023 On-boarding retreat programme for the State Executive Council and body of Permanent Secretaries.

The retreat has ‘Navigating Government Excellence: Role of Leadership in Ensuring A Greater Lagos Rises’ as its theme.

The governor reassigned Dr. Oreoluwa Finnih, formerly Special Adviser, Ministry of Health, as Special Adviser to the Governor on Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs)

Also, Abiola Olowu, formerly Special Adviser Ministry of Commerce, Cooperatives, Trade and Investment, is reassigned as Special Adviser, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (Office of Mineral Resources).

The PUNCH reports that Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday, swore in 37 commissioners and special advisers.

The swearing-in ceremony, which was held at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja, signalled the inauguration of the governor’s cabinet for his second term in office.

The Lagos State House of Assembly, after two screenings that saw the rejection of some nominees, had confirmed 38 nominees for the governor’s cabinet, with the last one, Tolani Akibu, being confirmed less than 24 hours before the swearing-in ceremony.
