By Ayo Balogun- In a massive purge, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has sacked 15 Permanent Secretaries in the State’s Public Service and appoints 19 new ones.
No reason was given for the sack of 15 permanent secretaries, but it might not be unconnected with corruption and loyalty to the former Governor, Babatunde Fashola.
Some of those sacked are: Permanent Secretaries Works and Infrstructure, Kolawole Martins; Lagos Television, Mubashiru Ajanaku; Lands Bureau, Hakeem Muri-Okunola; Justice, Lawal Pedro and others.
The governor, has however, approved the appointment of 19 new Permanent Secretaries in the State Public Service.
In a statement issued on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna, the appointments are in line with the Governor’s drive to restructure the civil service for efficient performance and service delivery.
The development is also coming on the heels of the streamlining of some existing Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) aimed at ensuring greater efficiency.
The new Permanent Secretaries, the statement said, have been deployed across board in the new structure of the civil service.
The names of the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries are Mr. Bamgboye Abiodun; Mrs. Dapo-Thomas Boladele Aderemi; Mrs. Ariyo Elizabeth Olabisi; Mrs. Adekanye Adebunmi Elizabeth; Mr. Bode Agoro; Dr. (Mrs.) Ayandele Olufolayimika Abiose; Dr. (Mrs.) Sodeinde Nuriat Ibironke; Mr. Odeyemi Mohammed Adesina; Mrs. Odulana Arinola Olufunmilayo.
