So, the nominee was asked to come to a screening with the lawmakers on Thursday, September 22.
In part of Abiodun’s letter, it says,
“I’m writing to tell Mr. Speaker and all members of the Honourable House that Mr. S.B. Olubanjo, who used to be Auditor-General for the State, is required by law to leave his job on June 17, 2022.
“As a result of this, the Building Our Future Together Agenda of this Administration requires that another Auditor General be chosen.”
