The Governor-elect of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-olu, on Wednesday morning ahead of his inauguration made his first appointment.
He picked Mr. Tayo Ayinde as his Chief of Staff. Energetic Ayinde was the Director-General of the Sanwo-olu Campaign Organisation, which rooted for the emergence of Sanwo-olu in the 2019 election.
Ayinde who was formerly a top officer in the Department of State Security Service is said to be an organiser.
In 2015, he came out to contest for the Lagos governorship but lost out.
Sanwo-Olu will later today be inaugurated as Lagos State governor.
