Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state has reshuffled his state executive council by designating the newly sworn-in commissioner, Alhaji Ismaila Ayansiju Lawal as Commissioner for Establishment and Training while Professor Daud Sangodoyin was moved to the ministry of Public Works and Transport.
The governor who made the announcement on Tuesday at the governor’s executive chamber maintained that the cabinet reshuffle is aimed at strengthening the government towards achieving its agenda within expected period.
Recall that the former commissioner for works, Prof Raphael Afonja, was sacked on 10th of August, 2020 shortly after recovering from COVID-19 which kept him out of office for some weeks.
Consequently, the ministry of public works has continued to run without a commissioner until the nomination of Alhaji Ayansiju who was confirmed by the state house of assembly on Monday 14th December, 2020.
Governor Makinde said his cabinet is one driven by ideas devoid of godfatherism, maintaining that the people of the state are the ultimate ones to be accountable.
