Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, has approved the appointment of  Agoro Olabode as the new head of civil service of the state

The appointment is to take effect from September 30.

According to Gbenga Akosile, the governor’s spokesperson, a circular confirming Olabode’s appointment was issued by Hakeem Muri-Okunola, the outgoing head of service, on Friday. 

“It is expedient to note that the new head of service joined the Lagos state public service on 1st July 2003 and had since served the state meritoriously before his elevation to the status of a permanent secretary on 3rd August, 2015,” Akosile wrote on X.


“Until this appointment, Mr. Agoro, Olabode Shuaheeb, who succeeds Mr. Hakeem Olayinka Muri-Okunola, was the permanent secretary, Lands Bureau.

“Okunola enjoined all the state’s civil servants to support and cooperate with the new head of service to consolidate on the achievements of his predecessors.

 “To this end, all public servants are hereby enjoined to accord the newly appointed head of service all necessary support required to consolidate on the achievements of his predecessors and, by extension, take the state public service to greater heights. Without prompting, all public servants are expected to consistently exhibit the time-tested public service values such as commitment, integrity, transparency, accountability, probity and loyalty in the discharge of their assigned responsibilities.


“While wishing the new head of service a most rewarding and successful tenure of office, accounting officers are hereby enjoined to take note of this circular and give it the widest publicity it deserves.”

On September 17,  President Bola Tinubu announced the appointment of Muri-Okunola as his principal private secretary. 

A principal private secretary is a senior civil servant who manages the president’s portfolio so that they can act as strategic counsel.
