A statement signed by the Press Secretary to the Speaker, Mr. Goke Butika, confirmed the receipt of the list of the 14 nominees by the 26-member Assembly.

According to the statement, those who made the list include: the first Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, Wale Afolabi the state Director of Research and Strategy for the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Mr. Sunday Akere.

Reacting to the list from the United Kingdom (UK), Speaker Nojeem Salam commended the governor for sending the list which he described as a slim cabinet, saying the assembly would scrutinised the particulars of all the nominees with a view to giving the state the best team.

Presiding over the plenary session, Deputy Speaker Akintunde Adegboye, promised the lawmakers would peruse the credential of the nominees, reiterating that there would be no ‘bow and go’.
