After Makinde’s aide denial, Oyo Assembly finally receives names of caretaker chairmen



Oyo State House of Assembly on Monday read out the names of  nominees for caretaker chairmen and sole administrators for local government areas and local council development areas, LCDAs in the state.

The names of the caretaker chairmen, numbering sixty eight,  (68) were contained in a message sent by Governor Seyi Makinde. The governor sent 33 names of Caretaker Chairmen and 35 names for sole administrators billed to occupy the LCDAs.

Governor Makinde had on Thursday released the  list  to the secretary to the state government, Mrs Olubamiwo Adeosun, for onward transmission to the Oyo State House of Assembly, after putting finishing touches, according to Mega Icon Magazine reports.

But, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Makinde, Mr Taiwo Adisa while featuring on a radio programme in Ibadan, the state capital, last Saturday said  it was untrue that the governor forwarded the list of caretaker chairmen and sole administrators to the State House of Assembly.

“No list has been submitted to State Assembly yet”, he said.

Meanwhile,  how the State House of Assembly got the list  on Monday, as earlier predicted is leaving many in bewilderment and consternation.

However,the  Oyo State House of Assembly, having acknowledged the receipt of the list sent by Governor Makinde, the names of nominees for caretaker chairmen and sole administrators for local government areas and local council development areas, LCDAs are as follows:

Oyo: Why I am happy I didn’t win 2019 election – Adelabu gives reason



Oyo state governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) In the 2019 election, Chief Adebayo Adelabu on Thursday said he was grateful that he did not win the 2019 election, adding that he would be a better governor in 2023.

Justifying his statement, Adelabu, who spoke during a media parley and lunch with journalists in Ibadan, the state capital stressed that losing the election has afforded him opportunity of knowing more about how progressives in the state operate.


According to the former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, (CBN),  unlike before, he has warmed himself into the heart of the grassroots and members of his APC.

Commenting on the present administration’s performance,  he said almost two years after Governor Seyi Makinde was inaugurated, nothing concrete could be pointed to as achievement of PDP-led government.

He said,  “Everything this administration promised the people of the state is still on their wish list 16 months after coming on board. With the caliber of people that have returned to APC, no party can stand the way of our party.

“No state needs a governor before salary is paid. When salary is paid through statutory allocations and it goes straight to the Accountant General, they take it to the bank and they pay. Why must that be the major achievement of any governor?

“And when you embark too much on populist programmes, which, in most cases, are not always giving the state sustainable development, it is more about immediate consumption.

“Populist programmes are short-lived. Within a short period, people will know that this man doesn’t really have so much to offer in terms of sustainable infrastructural development.

“It is going to two years now, can you point at one or two major projects that this government has completed? Everything is still on their wish list and if wishes were horses, beggars would ride,” he concluded.

Adelabu, who was full of thanks to God for sparing his life to reach 50 years, however noted that his grandfather, Adegoke Adelabu and father AbdulRauf Adelabu, both died aged 43 and 33 respectively.
