Governor Seyi Makinde nominates 27-year-old as Oyo commissioner

Governor Seyi Makinde [Oyo Government House]

Seyi Makinde has been praised for 'youthinising' governance after nominating another young person to his cabinet.

This was disclosed by the Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin, on Monday, August 19, 2019.

"Let's clear the air, the Oyo State House of Assembly has received the name of the 27-year-old Seun Fakorede of Ibarapaland, as commissioner nominee from the Oyo State Government, led by Governor Seyi Makinde," he posted on his social media pages.

Fakorede is a graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, where he bagged a civil engineering degree in 2016.

He is the founder and executive director of Home Advantage Africa, a non-profit outfit "advancing the frontiers of sustainable development in Africa".

Makinde swore in 14 commissioners last week after they were cleared by the House of Assembly, and with the Ministry of Youth and Sports still vacant, Fakorede is deemed perfect for the role.

Professor Raphael Afonja and Faosat Joke Sunni are two other cabinet nominees before the legislature and the trio are expected to be screened on Wednesday, August 21.
