The commissioner for Works and Infrastructure in Senator Ibikunle Amosun’s administration, Arc. Olalekan Adegbite has been announced as the name considered for the ministerial appointment from Ogun state.
Adegbite’s name came with forty-three (43) other names which was submitted to the National Assembly for confirmation as ministers.
Adegbite was a close and loyal friend to the immediate past governor.
PLATFORM TIMES observed that the announcement of Adegbite as the minister from Ogun state is contrary to the widely circulated rumour that someone from Osoba’s camp would be appointed.
Findings by our correspondent revealed that Osoba and Amosun’s group have submitted two different names to the president.
However, findings also showed that the relationship between Buhari and Amosun made the president consider Adegbite as the choice from Ogun state.
