Sequel to the adoption of the report of the Committee of the Ogun State House of Assembly chaired by the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Olakunle Oluomo, the House on Tuesday confirmed the nomination of nine commissioner-nominees out of the ten recently screened following the withdrawal of the nomination of Mr. Oshunbiyi Tunde by Governor Dapo Abiodun.
The confirmation of the nominees was thereafter done through a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Yusuf Sheriff, and seconded by the Minority Leader, Lukman Adeleye, and supported by the House through a unanimous voice vote.
Oluomo presided over the sitting held at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
According to the report, “the Committee found the nominees eligible and suitable to assume the exalted office of State Commissioner in Ogun State as some of them had undergone the same process in the House before their previous appointment in the state.”
Those confirmed included a former two-term member of the Assembly and a former Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Hon. Adijat Adeleye-Oladapo, Mr. Sofela Adebola Emmanuel, Hon. Ilori-Oduntan Olufemi, Engr. Oluwagbenga Dairo, Hon. Bolu Owootomo, Mr. Oladimeji Oresanya, Hon. Balogun Ademola, Engr Taiwo Oludotun and Mr. Fagbayi Sesan.
