Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has nominated a 27-year old graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University, Seun Fakorede as a Commissioner-designate.
Fakorede, according to Oyo Insight, bagged a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering in 2016.
The nominee, who hails from Idere area of Ibarapa Central local government is joining Alhaja Faosat Joke Sunni from Iseyin local government and Professor Rapheal Afonja from Ogbomoso North local government who were last week nominated to join the 14 Commissioners that were inaugurated last week.
The report stated that members of the Oyo State House of Assembly who are currently on recess are expected to sit on Wednesday to screen the three nominees.
It is suspected that the young engineer will be assigned the Ministry of Youth and Sports portfolio in line with Makinde’s promise during the electioneering campaigns that he would appoint a young person under the age of 30 to head the ministry.
