Folashade Adesoye Replaces Olabode Ademola as Lagos HoS

The Lagos State Government on Wednesday substituted the troubled Head of Service of the state, Mrs. Olabode Ademola, with Mrs. Folashade Adesoye, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation. 

Adesoye is to replace the embattled HOS in acting capacity, Punch reports. 

According to the reports, the previous HOS alongside her husband Justice Adeniyi Ademola, had been blamed by the Federal Government for bribery and corruption after Department of State Services ransacked their home.

They were arraigned on 11 counts on Tuesday including conspiracy to receive gratification and receiving gratification of N30m from Joe Agi and Associates.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, said, “Mrs. Ademola sought permission to be excused from her duty as the Head of Service while she proved her innocence in the allegation against her.

“The governor had granted that approval and appointed an acting HoS.”
