Ondo State Governor Selects Olayide Adelami as Deputy Governor
Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has nominated Olayide Adelami, a former Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly, as the deputy governor.
Adelami, an APC chieftain from Owo, retired from his position at the National Assembly in April 2018.
Background and Political History of Olayide Adelami
Olayide Adelami was a contender for the APC primary ticket in 2020, competing alongside the late Rotimi Akeredolu, who was the incumbent governor at the time.
Known for his political involvement and ties to the APC, Adelami has emerged as the nominee for the deputy governor position.
Confirmation of Nomination by Governor’s Spokesperson
Ebenezer Adeniyan, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Aiyedatiwa, confirmed Adelami’s nomination in a conversation with The Gazette on Wednesday afternoon.
Adeniyan stated that the official announcement of Adelami’s nomination would be made by the House of Assembly later in the day.
Swift Nomination Following Political Changes
The nomination of Olayide Adelami comes shortly after Governor Aiyedatiwa dissolved the State Executive Council members and removed all aides associated with former governor Akeredolu.
The move follows public demands for the appointment of a deputy governor after Aiyedatiwa assumed the governorship.
Anticipation for Legislative Confirmation
As the nomination is set to be officially announced by the House of Assembly, there is anticipation surrounding the legislative confirmation of Olayide Adelami as the deputy governor of Ondo State.
The political maneuver aims to establish a new leadership structure in the state.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
