Bode Agoro

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has appointed Mr. Bode Agoro as the state’s new Head of Service.

He replaced Hakeem Muri-Okunola who resigned from the position earlier this week following his appointment as principal private secretary to President Bola Tinubu.

The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Gboyega Akosile, confirmed the development in a statement posted on the X platform, (formerly Twitter), late Friday night.

The appointment, according to Akoshile, will take effect from September 30.

Agoro has served as Permanent Secretary, Lands Bureau, since August 3, 2015.

The statement read: “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 commitments, integrity, transparency, accountability, probity and loyalty in the discharge of their assigned responsibilities.”
