Lagos Censors Board Gets New Executive Secretary

by Yinka Akanbi

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the appointment of Mrs Adebukola Agbaminoja as the new Executive Secretary of Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board (LSFVCB).

This follows the suspension of the immediate past Executive Secretary of the board, Mr. Bamidele Balogun, in September 2020 over the imposition of an “unauthorised” five per cent levy on audio and visual contents produced in the state.

Agbaminoja was, until her appointment, the Legal Adviser of the Agency.

The state’s Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, in a letter confirming her appointment, said that her wealth of experience and immense knowledge would enhance the service delivery of the agency to citizens.

The letter reads in part: “Due cognisance has been taken of your integrity, selfless service and record of impressive performance. I, therefore, have no doubt that you will bring your wealth of experience to bear on the work of Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board and continue to justify the confidence reposed in you by Mr. Governor.

“As Legal Adviser of LSFVCB, Agbaminoja ensured the cleansing of Lagos streets of uncensored films, pornography, pirated films and video materials, through constant engagement with various stakeholders at the State and Federal levels.

“She brought to fore the symbiotic relationship between the Agency and all stakeholders within the law as well as the significance of monitoring and compliance through collaborative effort.

“Mrs. Agbaminoja’s appointment as the new Executive Secretary of Lagos State Film and Video Censors Board (LSFVCB) is with immediate effect.”
