Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday approved the nomination and appointment of the state’s ex-Commissioner for Agriculture, Prince Gbolahan Lawal, as the new Oniru of Iruland.

Lawal, who resigned from the state’s Executive Council a few days ago, succeeds Oba Idowu Abiodun who died last year.

The new Oniru was an Aide-De-Camp (ADC) to former Governor Bola Tinubu.

He was also a former Commissioner for Agriculture and Cooperatives during ex-Governor Babatunde Fashola’s administration and served as Commissioner for Housing under former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
