The Lagos House of Assembly has appointed Barrister Olalekan Onafeko as its Acting Clerk.
Prior to his appointment, Onafeko was the Head of Human Resources and Administration in the Assembly.
The appointment was announced on Monday after Lagos Deputy Speaker, Hon. Wasiu Eshinlokun-Sanni, informed the House that the former Clerk retired about a month ago and nature abhors a vacuum.
“It is the responsibility of the Selection Committee of the House to appoint a new Clerk.
