FULL LIST: Adeleke names commissioner nominees, includes Aregbesola’s ex-aides


The Osun house of assembly has received the list of nominees of commissioners and special advisers from Ademola Adeleke, the state governor.

Adewale Egbedun, speaker of the Osun assembly, read the governor’s letter containing the names, during plenary on Friday.

An ad-hoc committee was established to screen the nominees and send their names for confirmation.

The committee is chaired by Akinyode Oyewusi, the deputy speaker.

“I hereby wish to announce to this house and distinguished honourable colleagues that the deputy speaker, Rt. Hon. Oyewusi, will chair the house committee on the review of commissioner/special adviser nominees sent by H.E. Sen. Ademola Adeleke,” the speaker said.

“The committee is formed to critically screen commissioners and special advisers nominees of Osun state.

Each nominee must come with 35 copies of their curriculum vitae and declare their assets.”


On November 27, 2022, Adeleke was sworn in as governor of the state after he defeated Gboyega Oyetola, then incumbent governor.

Adeleke secured 403,371 votes to defeat Oyetola who polled 375,027 votes.

The nomination of commissioners and special advisers is coming seven months after the governor was sworn in.

Two members of former governor Rauf Aregbesola’s cabinet— Kolapo Alimi and Biyi Odunlade — made Adeleke’s list.
