The governor has reportedly sent 18 commissioner nominees to the legislature for ratification, as reported by janescope
On Wednesday, nine candidates were interviewed in the Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, building of the Ogun State House of Assembly.
The nominees were tasked with utilizing the benefits of technology to address issues of security, food shortages, transportation constraints, and waste management at the screening exercise presided over by Speaker Olakunle Oluomo.
