Aiyedatiwa picks ex-National Assembly clerk as Deputy

Ondo State Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has nominated a former Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly, Olayide Owolabi Adelami, as the new Deputy Governor of the state.

Adelami’s nomination came shortly after Governor Aiyedatiwa announced the dissolution of members of the State Executive Council in the cabinet, who worked under the late governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

Adelami, who is an alumnus of Imade College, obtained his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Lagos before proceeding to get his MBA from Ogun State University.

He was a deputy clerk at the National Assembly before retiring in April 2018.

Chief Press Secretary to the Ondo State Governor, Ebenezer Adeniyan, confirmed Adelami’s nomination in a statement on Wednesday.

Adelami’s nomination is believed to have laid to rest agitations for the appointment of a new deputy governor for the state following the emergence of Aiyedatiwa.

Aiyedatiwa became the substantive governor of the state after the sudden death of Akeredolu, who passed on after battling protracted prostrate cancer.
