Dapo Kolawole, who was nominated as Commissioner for Finance, and the Attorney-General designate, Wale Fapounda, were confirmed by the Speaker of the Assembly.

It was gathered that both nominees held the same offices in the first term of the state governor.

In confirming them, the lawmakers said both men had performed well during Governor Fayemi’s first term.

The Assembly, however, urged both men to work towards attracting investment into the state and avoid imposing a heavy tax burden on the people.
