Oyetola appoints commissioners 10 months after inauguration as Osun governor

Oyetola was inaugurated as Osun State governor last year but has only now nominated commissioners.

Oyetola had won a contentious election last year against former senator, Ademola Adeleke, who contested the result but eventually lost in the Supreme Court in July 2019.

Critics have long piled on Oyetola for not governing with a constitutionally-mandated cabinet, instead opting to appoint seven supervisors to run some ministries.

However, the governor has now sent a list of commissioner-designates and special advisers to the Osun State House of Assembly.
