Similarly, the Lagos State Head of Service said the appointment of Mr. Adeola Olusodo as Executive Director, Joint Venture & Business Development for the Lagos State Development & Property Corporation was in view of his capabilities and demonstrated commitment as the former General Manager, Joint Venture in the Agency.
While maintaining that the appointments stem from Mr. Governor’s confidence in the wealth of experience of both men and their demonstrated capacity to reposition LSDPC for the future, Muri-Okunola stated that both appointments are with effect from Monday, 15th November 2021.
He said following the approval of the appointments, Governor Sanwo-Olu charged the duo to focus on improving service quality, adding that the mandate of the newly restructured Agency is critical to the continued prosperity of Lagos State and as such, a lot would be expected of them.
