Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, has constituted an Advisory Council for his government. The council has former Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Hosea Ayoola Agboola as Chairman.
According to a statement issued by Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Taiwo Adisa, “the Council is to advise the Executive Governor and his cabinet from time to time on the implementation of developmental programmes and policies of the present administration.”
He said council will give the government the opportunity to tap from the wealth of experience of elders and opinion moulders in the state.
Other members of the council include:
Senator Monsurat Sunmonu
Former Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Mulika Akande Adeola
Chief Jacob Adetoro
Barr. Sarafadeen Abiodun Alli
Chief Bolaji Ayorinde (SAN)
