Lagos State Governor, AKINWUNMI AMBODE, has redeployed the Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, AKINYEMI ASHADE, to take over as the Commissioner for Finance.
The Governor made the decision shortly after the State Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, HABIB ARUNA, AKINYEMI ASHADE is expected to resume his new portfolio with immediate effect.
Governor AMBODE, however, said ASHADE would still oversee the Ministry of Economic Planning and Budget pending when the State Executive Council would be reshuffled.
It would be recalled that Governor AMBODE on October 19 carried out a cabinet reshuffle with the dropping of the Commissioners for Tourism – FOLORUNSHO FOLARIN-COKER; Finance, MUSTAPHA AKINKUNMI; and Transportation, EKUNDAYO MOBEREOLA.
