Ekiti State House of Assembly has confirmed Mr. Dapo Kolawole and Mr. Olawale Fapohunda as Commissioner for Finance and Attorney General/Commissioner for Justice respectively.
The two commissioners were confirmed Thursday, after their screening by the lawmakers following a letter by the Governor Kayode Fayemi earlier in the week, requesting their screening and confirmation for the positions.
