Oyo: Makinde Changes Deputy’s Office



By: Mohammed Oluwatimileyin Taoheed reports,

Hon. Seyi Makinde, who is the incumbent Governor of Oyo State, has given a standing order that the office of his Deputy, Mr. Rauf Olaniyan be changed to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.

This new development was contained in a letter signed by Mrs Olabamiwo Adeosun, the Secretary to the State Government, Track News Nigeria has learnt.

The two paragraph letter with reference number SP/S326/T/71 was dated June 17th.

However, the letter does not state who was behind a signpost seen installed at the Ministry of Environment indicating the Office of the Deputy Governor.

Recall that a report of Track News Nigeria has that the Deputy Governor has earlier dumped the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC).

The letter titled reads: “Relocation of the office of the Deputy Governor of Oyo State to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources” reads in part “I have the directive to inform Your Excellency that His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde (FNSE) has approved the relocation of the Office of the Deputy Governor to the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources, Secretariat, Ibadan.

“I thank Your Excellency.”

Recall Olaniyan has been using his private office owing to the midnight rainfall that blew off his office roof and got part of it damaged for about three months now.

One of our source, under anonymity, commented that most reconstruction job of the office had been completed, safe for the finishing but was expecting the welcome of office furniture.
