A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, has urged Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to duly constitue State Executive Council and desist from spending public funds.
The Senior Advocate went further to accused the governor for running things alone. Adegboruwa(SAN), in his statement ‘Lagos Without a Cabinet’ also called out governors of other state including Oyo and Ogun state, following in his stead
He expressed that; “Presently, Lagos State is operating without an Executive Council in place. The House of Assembly has since been inaugurated and its officers duly elected.“Money is being spent daily without Commissioners and without an Executive Council duly constituted.“His Excellency, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu is on the saddle for his second term in office, so he is not new. Dr. Alex Otti, who is a first-term governor, has since constituted his cabinet, so too Mr. Ademola Adeleke of Osun State. “Governor Sanwo-Olu was sworn in for a second term in office on May 29, 2023. It is now well over one month and he seems to be running a one-man show. So too, the governors of Oyo and Ogun states, who are also on their second terms in office.“A state as cosmopolitan and complex as Lagos deserves a functional cabinet, for certainty of administration and predictability of policies.”
“I, therefore, urge the governor to promptly constitute his cabinet without further delay so Lagos will not be on autopilot.
