Mixed Reactions As Lagos Lawmakers Dump English, Confirm Sanwo-Olu’s Nominees In Yoruba Language

Nigerians on social media have reacted to the usage of Yoruba language by the Lagos State House of Assembly in the final confirmation of Commissioner-nominees sent by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for confirmation.

Recall that Sanwo-Olu had sent a fresh list containing 18 names to the House after 17 of the 39 names, initially sent were rejected.

The rejected names were replaced in the new list, and one new name was added to make up the 18 names.

However, a video that surfaced online showed the moment the speaker of the house, Madashiru Obasa questioned and deliberated with other members of the house about the confirmation of the nominees in Yoruba language.

Watch video below;

The video has elicited mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media, while many commended the initiative, others said it was unnessary.
