Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has said the new executive council would be inaugurated on Tuesday.
The governor spoke at the weekend while receiving a body of retired top civil servants under the aegis of the Association of Lagos State Retired Heads of Service and Permanent Secretaries (ALARHOSPS).
Sanwo-Olu said that the wheel of governance would be in full gear before the end of the week, in fulfillment of his campaign promise to inaugurate his cabinet within 90 days of assumption of office.
He also stated that the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries would be sworn in on Monday to complement the activities of Commissioners and Special Advisers.
His words: “Next week, precisely on Tuesday by God’s grace, we are swearing in all other complements of cabinet and also Permanent Secretaries to have the engine of governance on full swing. At that point, we believe that all the campaign promises we made can come to reality and Lagosians can benefit more from the choice they made at the last election.”
The appointees are expected to be allocated their individual ministries during the inauguration ceremony scheduled to start at 9 a.m.
The governor described the body of retired civil servants as “valuable assets” to the state, noting that their actions while in service contributed to the “enviable height” Lagos attained among states in the federation.
