Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Monday swore-in 27-year old Temidayo Fakorede as commissioner for youths and sports.
He also swore-in two others to bring the number of commissioners in the state to 17. Haven swore in 14 earlier.
The inauguration of Fakorede is in fulfilment of the governor’s promise during electioneering campaign. “I promised them that whoever is going to be the commissioner of youths and sports will be below 30 years of age and I was conscious of the fact that we are not only going to talk about age but we are also going to talk about content.
“And I am happy today that we have in Seun Fakorede, the 27years old, who I am proud of as a product of this state,” he said.
The other two commissioners inaugurated were Professor Raphael Afonja and Alhaja Fausat Ajoke Sanni.
The three new commissioners were assigned portfolios: Professor Afonja was assigned the Ministry of Works and Transport; Alhaja Sanni was designated as the Commissioner for Women Affairs.
Some protesters had called on the governor to dump Fakorede.
