The new names among the 18 nominees are Dr. Afolabi Abiodun Tajudeen, Prof. Akinola Emmanuel Abayomi, Mr. Akinyemi Bankole Ajigbotafe, Hon. Tolani Sule Akibu, Dr. Yekini Nurudeen Agbaje, Dr. Iyabode Oyeyemi Ayoola and Hon. Sola Shakirudeen Giwa.

The list of new 18 nominees read on the floor of the Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday was as a result of the earlier rejection of the 17 nominees by the Assembly over political and religious controversy that trailed the initial list of 39 nominees sent by Governor Sanwo-Olu to the House.

It would be recalled that the Lagos State House of Assembly last month confirmed 22 nominees and failed to confirmed 17.

Those not confirmed are 10 former members of the immediate past members of the State Executive Council. They were Gbenga Omotoso, Folashade Adefisayo, Olalere Odusote, Bolaji Dada, Akin Abayomi, Sam Egube, Aramide Adeyoye, Solape Hammond, Rotimi Fashola and Mosopefoluwa George.
