The 32- man committee is to be chaired by the following;
Selection – Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, Business Rules and Standing Order – Hon. Sanai Agunbiade, Ethics, privileges and Protocol – Hon. Rotimi Abiru, House Services – Hon. Makinde  Rasheed Lanre, Public Account (State ) – Hon. Moshood Olanrewaju Oshun, Public Account (Local) – Hon. Bisi Yusuf, Agric – Hon. Kazeem Raheem, Economic Planning and Budget – Hon. Rotimi Olowo, Education – Hon. Lanre Ogunyemi, Science and Tech – Hon. Saka Solaja, Environment – Hon. Saka Fafunmi, Establishment, Training and Pensions – Hon. Dayo Famakinwa, Energy and Mineral Resources – Hon. Folajimi Mohammed, Waterfront Infrastructure Development – Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu, Transport – Hon.

Registering her displeasure over the treatment meted on her, Tejuosho lashed out, “I reject the committee as I now see there is no regards for me in this house”.

The committee has 14 first time legislators as chairmen, three of which are Peoples Democratic Party members, many of those seemingly unfavoured few were wearing grumpy looks after the seating.
