Lagos Commissioner of Work Resigns

Lagos state Commissioner of Works and Infrastructure, Engr Ganiyu Johnson has resigned his appointment as member of the state cabinet. He was said to have resigned on Friday, January 6, 2017. The state government has not officially announced his resignation but Encomium Weekly can authoritatively confirm the resignation.
Several calls and text message to the Commissioner for information and Strategy, Mr Steve Ayorinde, for his comments on the the resignation, was not responded to.
Engr Ganiyu Johnson has been a long time member of Lagos state cabinet. He was Special Adviser to Governor Babatunde Fashola on Works and Infrastructure for eight years before he was appointed commissioner by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
His resignation will make it the fourth person to leave Governor Ambode’s cabinet. Late last year when the cabinet turned one, three Commissioners were dropped by the governor. They are Mr Folorunsho Folarin Coker, the Commissioner for Culture; Dr Dayo Mobereola, the Commissioner for Transportation and Mr Mustafa Abiodun Akinkunmi, the Commissioner for Finance. Since their exit, no replacement has been announced by the governor.
If the information we are getting is anything to go by there is likely to be a cabinet reshuffle very soon. Meaning more commissioners are likely to say goodbye to the cabinet .
