In a unanimous decision on Thursday, 14 July, 2022, the Lagos State House of Assembly voted for the sack of the Chairman of the State House of Assembly Commission (LAHASCOM), Wale Mogaji.
Mogaji’s sack was approved after a voice vote by members of the House at plenary.
No reason was given for the unceremonious sack of the man who has been the Chairman of the Commission since its inception during the era of Rt Hon Sabith Adeyemi Ikuforiji.
The lawmakers also appointed Mrs. Folashade Raulat Latona as the new Secretary of the Commission.
Latona replaces Mrs. Esther Abosede Lambo, who retired recently.
The House also confirmed Barrister Olalekan Onafeko as the substantive Clerk of the House while it elevated three other senior staff to the position of Deputy Clerks.
Those elevated Deputy Clerks are: Mr. Babs Animashaun, Mr. Taiwo Otun and
Mrs. Adenike Oshinowo.
Onafeko was appointed Acting Clerk in 2020.
Earlier during the plenary, the House raised concerns over the recent boat mishap that led to the death of about 15 people on June 8 as well as the floods recorded in some parts of the State recently.
The lawmakers further said there was need by the Governor of the State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to work towards a solution to the flooding incidents.
