However the lawmakers refused to confirm the nominee for Odigbo local government, Mrs Margaret Akinsuroju for undisclosed  reasons, and referred her for further scrutiny.Mrs Magaret Akinsuroju, was the Commissioner for Women affairs under the administration of late former governor Olusegun Agagu.

The lawmakers at a plenary presided over by the speaker, Rt. Hon Bamidele Oleyelogun after screening the nominees confirmed their eligibility to serve the people of the state.

The Speaker, Oleyelogun after the House Selection Committee submitted their report noted that the confirmation of the interim chairmen became imperative in order to avoid vacuum in the local govt administration in the state.
