“With this appointment, you have all effectively become the accounting officer of your MDAs,” the governor said. “You have been entrusted with a bigger and more sensitive responsibility which will put to test your leadership and managerial skills.

He added, “Let me remind you of the very high expectations that will be placed on you, not only from the government but more importantly, from the over 22 million Lagosians who desire efficient and service delivery. Your ability to meet these expectations will depend on the amount of creativity and innovation you can bring to bear in the discharge of your responsibilities.”

Ambode congratulated the new permanent secretaries, saying it was on record that the elevation was strictly based on merit as evidenced by their performance, commitment and dedication to duty over the years.

The appointees are Dr Olabisi Taiwo (Ministry of Health), Mr Olusegun Ajibade (Public Service Office), and Mrs Abiayo Akinsiku (Primary Healthcare Board).

Others are Dr Yusuf Jimoh (Ministry of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations), and Mr Ganiyu Rufai (Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Cooperatives).

Responding on behalf of the new Permanent Secretaries, Dr Taiwo thanked the governor for the opportunity to serve the state at the highest level in the civil service.
