Gov Sanwo-Olu Swears in Special Advisers on PPP, Agriculture


The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has sworn in new Special Advisers on Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and Agriculture (Rice Mill Initiative).

Sanwo-Olu confirmed Ope George and Dr Oluwarotimi Fashola as advisers during the weekly State Executive Council meeting on Monday, where he also signed three bills into law.

The three bills included the law to regulate ownership, licensing, and sales of pets, which prohibit and restrict people from having in custody dangerous animals in public places.

Speaking on the development, Sanwo-Olu said George and Fashola were coming with a lot of experience in public and private partnership and agriculture to add value to the system.

He said, “We believe this addition to our cabinet will further strengthen our ability to deliver all that we promised our citizens because we need people in strategic positions. We need people that have sufficient authority to be able to dispense their responsibilities.”

Furthermore, the governor noted that the law regulating the ownership, licensing, and sales of pets, prohibiting and restricting people from taking dangerous animals to public places, would strengthen all the deliverables in the Ministry of Agriculture, especially issues with pets and animals.
