Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has approved the appointment of three new Permanent Secretaries in the Public Service.
A statement issued on Monday by the Acting Head of Service, Folasade Adesoye, said the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries were Engr. Temidayo O. Erinle, who will oversee the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure; Adetutu Abiola Liadi for the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation; and Dr Atinuke Muynat Onayiga, Primary Healthcare Board.
While wishing the new Permanent Secretaries successful tenures, the statement noted that the appointments were with immediate effect.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has dismissed a suit filed by the Federal Government seeking an order wresting the control and management of its land in Lagos State from the state government.
Lagos State Government had filed a preliminary objection to challenge the competence of the suit.
A five-man panel of the Supreme Court led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, unanimously ruled in favour of Lagos government.
Justice Dattijo Muhammad, who read the apex court’s lead ruling, agreed with the Lagos State Government that the court lacked the power to exercise its “original jurisdiction” in the suit because the Federal Government had “transferred its title in the land to others”.’
