The embattled Ogun state Commissioner-designate, for Education, (Dr./Prof.) Sidi Osho, has resumed office as the State Commissioner for Education without swearing in or taking any oath of office PLATFORMS TIMES has learnt.

It would be recalled that Osho was brought under fire after some irregularities were uncovered about her professional career as a lecturer and her sack from the Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU.

Investigations conducted by PLATFORM TIMES revealed that the embattled Commissioner who was sacked in 2016 for gross misconduct resumed when the Governor, Dapo Abiodun was out of the country in search for investors.

Meanwhile PLATFORM TIMES had earlier reported how her secret move to quash the dismissal before the university Senate met a brick wall .

When PLATFORM TIMES learnt Osho had resumed, our reporter visited her office and asked if she was on seat then , but, immediately her secretary discovered she was speaking to journalist, she asked ” Do you have an appointment with her ? She is not on seat”.

Meanwhile,our sources inside the Governor’s office and at the ministry of education told PLATFORM TIMES, that Osho, who was dismissed at the state owned University, OOU, Ago-Iwoye in 2016 resumed office on 26th January at the Governor’s office but only went to the ministry to attend to official duties on rare occasions.

On resumption, she was said to have moved round the ministry in company of other top ministry officials, to announce her resumption even without being sworn in.

Our sources who have been keeping tap on events as they unfold told our reporter that Osho’s resumption is confusing as no one could tell if she has been secretly sworn in or not.

When our reporter put a call across to Osho, her phone rang severally but was not picked nor did she respond to a text message sent to her phone.

Attempts to get reaction from the state government probed abortive as none of the spokespersons for the government could be reached .
