Some former commissioners that served under the immediate past governor Rauf Aregbesola have been “supervising” the ministries they ran until substantive commissioners emerge.
In a chat with journalists on Monday in his country home in Iragbiji, Governor Oyetola stated that he was still processing the commissioner nominees that were sent to him from the federal constituencies in the state and that he would forward the list to the State House of Assembly afterwards.
The governor explained that in line with the all inclusive participatory style of his governance, the ruling All Progressives Congress were asked to provide those that would make the cabinet.
Governor Oyetola said, “we have asked the party (APC) to produce those that would make the cabinet. We decided to throw the process of appointing the commissioner to the party on line with our inclusive participatory governance.
” The process has started. We have seen the returns from the decisions from the federal constituencies in the state. We will then do our screening. I am processing the list. I am looking at considering the best. Those that will bring our vision and serve our people. After my processing, the list will be sent to the State House of Assembly for screening and approval.
“We want to have the best hands in the cabinet. In a matter of time, we will get the cabinet ready. I will say it will be ready in a very short time,” Oyetola said.
