As Lagos State commences preparations for election into local government councils in the state, the state House of Assembly has confirmed Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s nominees for the board membership of the Lagos Independent Electoral Commission, LASIEC.
The four members of the board confirmed by the lawmakers include Dr. Olubunmi Omosehindemi, Lateef Raji, Chief (Mrs.) Sekinat Famakinwa, and Mr. Aiyedun Olusegun Fasi.
The Clerk of the House was directed to communicate the confirmation to the governor through a letter.
Their confirmation came after lawmakers commended the nominees for their consistency and loyalty to their fatherland.
Dr. Omosehinde was commended for his exploits in alternative medicine even as an orthodox medical doctor and for his role in fighting the past military government of Nigeria before the current civilian dispensation got into existence in 1999.
Lateef Raji was also praised for being an activist who fought for the current democracy and for his performances under the last government as the Special Adviser on Information and Strategy.
The Speaker observed that all the nominees have done well in their various fields of endeavour and stressed that the House of Assembly does not doubt their ability to put in their best for the state in organising credible elections at the local government level.
