Oyo State Youngest Commissioner Oluwaseun Fakorede Enemies Stage Protests At Oyo State House Of Assembly Agodi Ibadan

2 separate groups are staging protests in front of the Oyo State House of Assembly complex, Agodi Secretariat, Ibadan.

While a group is opposing the nomination of 27-year- old Oluwaseun Fakorede, the other group is supporting his nomination as a commissioner.

The anti-Fakorede group, which is made up of members and leaders of the ruling party, hinged their protest on claims that his father had defected to the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) and worked against the success of the PDP at the elections.

The group, which comprises party leaders, elders and women carrying placards with various inscriptions, urged lawmakers not to screen or confirm the nomination.

They added the nomination also negates the sharing arrangement by the leaders to cover the interest of all the regions and zones of the area.

But the pro-Fakorede group, made of students and representatives of the student association bodies, said the nominee has the capacity to deliver and represent the youths well in Governor Seyi Makinde’s cabinet.

The protests stated after the House of Assembly announced plans to screen the three commissioners-nominees sent by Governor Makinde.

The lawmakers, who are expected to conduct the screening exercise, are yet to converge at the Hallowed Chamber of the Assembly.

    @SEUN AND ANNABEL, YOU JUST MADE me laugh o. At any rate, the questions they should ask are:–
    1) Is the young man capable?
    2) Did he work for PDP, even though his father worked against PDP. The child should not bear the scourge for the political sins of his father.

    What is wrong with a 27yr old commissioner? His father defected, so what? Was the son picked from an opposition party? He is a graduate and not too young to be a commissioner. Why is hypocrisy the order of the day in this stupid country. We are tired o old men, yet we don’t want to hear of young people holding positions. Is it aliens that will occupy the positions? Those old men should go hug a transformer!
