Governor Akinwunmi Ambode

According to a statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Tunji Bello, the governor would swear-in the new appointees on Monday at the Banquet Hall of Lagos House, Ikeja.

The statement added that the sole administrators, after being sworn-in, would take charge of their various councils pending the conduct of local poll later this year.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ambode on Thursday approved the immediate dissolution of caretaker committees following the resolution of the Lagos State House of Assembly.

The dissolution relieved the Executive Secretaries of the 57 Local Governments Councils and Local Council Development Areas in the state of their responsibilities.

The governor also directed the executive secretaries to hand over the reins of administration to the Head of Administration in the council areas.
