Ogun State House of Assembly has confirmed the nomination of the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for the Judicial Service Commission, Mrs. Oyinkansola Adebimpe Cole, affirming her eligibility and suitability to assume office as a member of the Commission. 

The confirmation followed the adoption of the report of the Committee of the Whole House chaired by the Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo as presented by his Deputy, Bolanle Ajayi, who also moved the motion for its adoption which was seconded by Damilare Bello.

The confirmation of the nominee was thereafter done through a motion moved by the Majority Leader, Yusuf Sherif, seconded by Hon. Lawal Adekunle and supported by other lawmakers through a voice vote.

According to the report, "the profile and credentials of the nominee were thoroughly and carefully scrutinized by honourable members. Thereafter, the nominee was interviewed by the members. The committee found the nominee, Mrs. Oyinkansola Cole eligible and suitable to assume office as the Member of the Judicial Service Commission in Ogun State"

"The Committee therefore recommended that the nomination of Mrs. Oyinkansola Adebimpe Cole for appointment as Member of the Judicial Service Commission in the State be approved by the House, having found her eligible and suitable to hold the office, in line with the provision of Section 198 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as altered)".

In another development, Speaker Oluomo directed the State Ministries of Environment as well as Works and Infrastructure to immediately carry out a feasible measure that will aid the mobility of residents of Ayede Ayila in Ogun Waterside State Constituency who had been affected by flooding in the last two months, this was just as he directed that machineries be set in motion to alleviate the plight of fish farmers and producers of fingerlings on the over 200 hectares of land covering Alari/Agosasa/Oniro in Ipokia/Idiroko State Constituency.

Oluomo equally directed members, whose constituencies had flooding related challenges across the three Senatorial Districts to compile a comprehensive list of affected areas with a view to further engaging the concerned Ministries, Departments and Agencies of Government for immediate intervention.

The Speaker's submisison was sequel to the report of a member representing Ogun Waterside State Constituency, Hon. Samusideen Lawal and his Ipokia/Idiroko and Abeokuta South II counterparts, Bisi Oyedele and Ayodele Wasiu respectively who spoke under personal explanations narrating the ordeals of their constituents following the perennial flooding which had affected their business operations. 

They requested that the State Ministries of Works and Infrastructure as well as Environment mobilize the Swamp Buggy Excavator for the dredging of streams in their constituencies to address the challenges in the affected communities.
