Oyo Deputy Governor remains committed to office despite sanctions



Recall that, Governor ‘Seyi Makinde, some weeks ago, ordered that the office of the deputy governor be relocated to the Ministry of Environment, and he was served a letter to that regard.

The embattled deputy governor of Oyo State, Rauf Olaniyan who resumed at his new office which was recently moved to the state’s ministry of Environment said his resumption was in compliance with the directive of the constituted authority.

Olaniyan, who noted that obedience had always been his virtue, said he was comfortable with every decision made by the state government regarding his office relocation.

According to him: “I have had the opportunity to work with this government for 28 years. Go and ask about me from those who know me. I have never been served a query for disobedience. So why should this be an exception?”

The deputy governor, who noted that he still remains committed to his office, noted that nothing would deter him from carrying out his official duties as the deputy governor of the state.

Olaniyan said he did not share the same thought with those who believed that he is being witch-hunted by the sitting governor because of his  defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

It was reported that last week, the deputy governor received a petition from members of the state’s House of Assembly,  accusing him of several misconducts, which may be tantamount to his impeachment after a final legal impeachment process.
