Backstory 

Nairametrics reported that of the first 39-man list sent to the Lagos House of Assembly, 17 were rejected by the House.

It took the intervention of the Governor and other stakeholders for most of the nominees in the second list to be approved.

However, four of the 15 nominees in the second list sent by the Governor were rejected. Notable among them were Sam Egube, the former Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, who had also been turned down in the first list proposed by Governor Sanwo-Olu.

Furthermore, Engr. Olalere Odusote, the former Commissioner for Energy, faced rejection for the second time by the Assembly.
