Ambode Retires 15 Perm Secs And Appoints 19 Others

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State yesterday  retired 15 Permanent Secretaries in the state civil service. Nineteen others  were also appointed.

Among those retired with immediate effect, was the boss of Lagos Radio/Television, Adekunle Ajanaku.

It was only in January last year that former boss of the Lagos Radio Television Lekan Ogunbanwo was moved to Parastatals Monitoring Office. Ajanaku was formerly of the Deputy Governor’s office.

The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna, said the appointments are in line with his  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.

According to reliable sources, the  wave  which swept away the  officials, resulted from  alleged ‘unprofessional conduct’, incompetence and misappropriation of funds, allegedly committed during the  immediate past administration.

It was also gathered that some permanent secretaries, who could have been affected in the sack were advised earlier to proceed on retirement.

The names of the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries are Mr. Bamgboye Abiodun; Mrs. Dapo-Thomas Aderemi; Mrs. Ariyo Olabisi; Mrs. Adekanye Elizabeth; Mr. Bode Agoro; Dr. (Mrs.) Ayandele Olufolayimika Abiose; Dr. (Mrs.) Sodeinde Ibironke; Mr. Odeyemi Adesina; Mrs. Odulana Olufunmilayo.

Others are Mrs. Onisarotu Jemil; Engr. Bade-Adebowale Caster; Mrs. Amosu Ayodele; Mr. Kadiri Adebisi; Mrs. Anifowoshe Abiola; Mr. Adeyemi Anthony; Dr.  Oduwole  Elizabeth; Mr. Mustapha  Olorunfemi; Mrs. Odunlami Adesola and Mr. Odupitan Olusola.

Governor Ambode is expected to swear in the new Permanent Secretaries tomorrow. (Vanguard)
