Ekiti Governor Sends List Of New Commissioner-Nominees To State Assembly

By Kelvin Ifedayo

In what appeared like a way of appeasing the aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has sent a list of seven new commissioner-nominees to the State House of Assembly for approval.

The Speaker of the House of Assembly, Hon. Funminiyi Afuye read the names of the nominees on the floor of the House 

It would be recalled that last month, Governor Fayemi had set up a peace and reconciliation committee, led by the immediate past Chairman of the party, Chief Jide Awe, to reconcile aggrieved members of the party, who had been complaining of being sidelined in appointment and patronage.

The cabinet reshuffle could be one of the resolutions of the Awe led Committee.

The Commissioner nominees are:

Otunba Diran Adesua – Ekiti East

Prince Olabode Adetoyi – Moba

Dr. Mrs Olabimpe Aderiye – Ido Osi

Dr. Oye Filani – Ikole

Princess Iyabo Fakunle – Ilejemeje

Alhaja Mariam Ogunlade – Emure

Mr. Akin Omole – Oye

Also nominated for board positions were:

Prof Femi Akinwunmi – SUBEB

Hon. Febisola Adewale – Local Government Service Commission

Speaking on the new development, Fayemi’s Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, said it was part of the strategies to fortify the cabinet and bring in new blood and ideas to develop the state.

Oyebode, who spoke via telephone, added that Fayemi was determined to deliver on his mandate to bring economic prosperity, by working with other progressives to give the people the required dividends of democracy.

When asked who are those to be shown out of the door in the state cabinet as a result of the new development, Oyebode said: “Let us wait and see how the screening will end before talking about who will be affected.

“The essence of the cabinet reshuffle is to strengthen the government for better performance and that we shall achieve in the end”.
