Former Commissioners of Aregbesola Land Important Roles in Adeleke’s Appointee Line-Up

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State Swears in New Appointees, Announces Portfolios for Commissioners

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has officially sworn in his new appointees, including commissioners, during a ceremony held at the State Government Secretariat in Osogbo. In an effort to prioritize good governance, Adeleke ensured a merit-based process in selecting his cabinet. He charged the members to bring new and innovative ideas that would re-engineer the state’s economy to meet the high expectations of the people.

  1. Ademola Adeleke Appoints Himself as Commissioner for Works

Governor Adeleke surprised many by appointing himself as the State Commissioner for Works. This move demonstrates his commitment and hands-on approach to the development of infrastructure in Osun State. This decision showcases Adeleke’s determination to achieve tangible results in the construction and maintenance of roads, bridges, and other vital infrastructure projects.

  1. A Mix of Technocrats, Professionals, and Youths in the Cabinet

Adeleke’s new cabinet is composed of individuals from various backgrounds, including technocrats, professionals, and youths. The diverse composition of the team is expected to bring fresh perspectives and ideas to the table, facilitating the governor’s agenda for transformation in the state. The inclusion of young people in positions of responsibility highlights Adeleke’s commitment to fostering youth participation and empowerment.

  1. Notable Appointees with Former Experience in the APC

Among the newly appointed commissioners, two individuals previously served as commissioners during the administration of former Governor Rauf Aregbesola, who belongs to the All Progressives Congress (APC). Kolapo Alimi, who was the commissioner of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs under Aregbesola, has been appointed as the Commissioner of Information and Public Enlightenment. Biyi Odunlade, formerly the Commissioner of Youth and Sports, will now serve as the Commissioner of Political Affairs and Inter-Government Affiliation.

  1. Adeleke, Aregbesola, and Oyetola: A Political Rivalry

Although both Aregbesola and the immediate past governor, Gboyega Oyetola, are members of the ruling APC, they have become political rivals. After losing to Oyetola in the 2018 governorship election and challenging the result up to the Supreme Court, Adeleke emerged victorious in the July 2022 governorship poll. This victory signifies a major shift in the political dynamics of Osun State.
