Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos has approved the appointment of Arc. Gbolahan Oki as the General Manager of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LABSCA).
This was announced in a post on Twitter on Sunday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Gboyega Akosile.
He stated that Sanwo-Olu also okayed the appointment of Adenike Dasola Oyetunde as his Senior Special Assistant on Persons Living with Disabilities (PLWD).
According to Akosile, Oyetunde’s appointment is in fulfilment of Sanwo-Olu’s promise, on 30th December 2020, to appoint a Senior Special Assistant, during an interactive session and distribution of various support items to 364 physically-challenged persons at the State House in Marina.
He said Arc. Oki’s appointment was consequent upon the appointment and redeployment of the erstwhile General Manager of the Agency, Engr. (Mrs.) Abiola Kosegbe as Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development with effect from 5th February 2021.
Before his present appointment, Arc. Oki – a highly experienced professional, was the Lagos State Chief Resilience Officer, adding that the new General Manager had also served at the Lagos State Urban Renewal Agency from 2000-2012, among other State Agencies.
Similarly, the appointment of Oyetunde stems from the confidence in her capabilities and demonstrated commitment to the rights and well-being of PLWDs.
She had served as Programme Manager, Ambassador, Volunteer and Fundraiser on Irede Foundation’s Amputees United Initiative since 2018, stressing that Oyetunde had also volunteered since 2014 with Belinda Gates Foundation, a Non-Profit International Organisation in promoting the well-being of persons living with disabilities.
