Ekiti 2018: Fayose grooms ex-commissioner as successor

Posted 4 months, 3 wks ago
Indications have emerged that Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose is grooming former Commissioner for Works and Transport, Kayode Oso, to take over when his tenure expires on October 15, 2018.

Oso, an indigene of Ado-Ekiti, served as Fayose’s Chief of Staff and later Commissioner for Works and Transport during his first tenure, which ended abruptly with impeachment on October 16, 2006.

He narrowly escaped arrest while following his boss for an overseas trip at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Lagos in July 2006 when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested some aides of the governor for alleged N1.4 billion poultry scam at the time.

After Fayose’s dramatic comeback to power on October 16 2014, Oso was reappointed Commissioner for Works and Transport but quit on April 6, 2016 under controversial circumstances.

The administration claimed Oso resigned on “health grounds” while Oso travelled to London shortly before returning towards the end of the year.

The ex-commissioner holds chairmanship of key committees coordinating many activities in the Ado-Ekiti Government House.

One of the committees holds regular interface with interest

groups like artisans, labour unions, market women, students, youths and ethnic nationalities, serving as Fayose’s contact person.

Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) governorship aspirants include former Minister of State for Works and spokesperson of the National Caretaker Committee, Prince Dayo Adeyeye; former High Commissioner to Canada, Chief Dare Bejide, and former Deputy Governor, Chief Abiodun Aluko.

They declined to drop their ambition for Fayose or his protégé.
