Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has forwarded the names of his commissioner-nominees to the State House of Assembly.
OyoInsight reports that the names were sent to the office of the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin in a sealed envelope.

Former governor Rashidi Ladoja’s personal lawyer, Biodun Abdulraheem, also made the list.
It was learnt that some of the earlier listed names, particularly from the coalition parties were replaced as a result of the clash in local government of origin/federal constituency of origin or power play within the coalition.
However, reports say some of the earlier listed individuals who were later dropped from the list sent to the lawmakers could either be sent in a supplementary list or be given other appointments.
The Speaker has however denied receiving the list, saying it is still being expected.
Newspeakonline however gathers that the list may not be unveiled on Thursday unless it is officially handed over to the Speaker who would read it on the floor of the Assembly
