The Governor of Osun state, Adegboyega Oyetola has appointed the former Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, and nine others as chairmen of various boards of government agencies and parastatals with immediate effect.
This was revealed in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ismail Omipidan and obtained by TOS NEWS on Friday.
Adewole was appointed as board chairman of Osun State University Teaching Hospital.
Others include, Kunle Odeyemi as board chairman, Osun state College of Education, Ilesa; former Deputy Speaker of Osun House of Assembly, Akintunde Adegboye, as chairman, College of Technology, Esa Oke; Saka Layonu as chairman, Osun State Polytechnic, Iree; former Deputy Speaker, Osun House of Assembly, Taiwo Sunmonu, as chairman of Teaching Service Board; Abiodun Awolola as chairman, House of Assembly Service Commission; George Adedeji as chairman, Local Government Service Commission; Femi Osunro as chairman, Civil Service Commission; George Owolabi as chairman, College of Education, Ila; and Bisi Odewumi as chairman, School of Health Technology, Ilesa.
The statement further read in part, “The governor noted that the appointments, which take immediate effect, were informed by the strong need to provide the necessary governance and oversight structure for government agencies and parastatals, just as he noted that the remaining boards’ appointments would be made soon.”
Governor Oyetola has declared his intention run for second term but this is amid protracted crisis rocking the Osun State chapter of the APC.
A former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Lasun Yussuff, former Speaker of the Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Najeem Salaam and former Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, had in Osogbo late December last year launched a recue operation against Oyetola’s re-election.
