There are insinuations that the Lagos Governor, Akinwumi Ambode will sack some non-performing commissioners in the coming days.

According to Punch, Ambode is not happy with the overall performance of the lagging commissioners.

Reports also say some of the affected government officials have tendered their resignation before the announcement of their sack.

Ambode had earlier axed the following commissioners: Folorunsho Folarin-Coker (Tourism), Dr. Mustapha Akinkunmi (Finance) and Dr. Ekundayo Mobereola (Transport).

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde has however debunked the reports of a cabinet shake-up.

Ayorinde said “If anyone resigns, only the person and the governor can make the announcement. Also, only the governor can announce a change of his cabinet. It is not appropriate to react to rumours.”

Meanwhile, Governor Akinwumi Ambode has promised to make life more comfortable for Lagosians in 2017.
