Embattled Oyo State Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniyan, on Tuesday, resumed at his new office at the state’s Ministry of Environment.
Olaniyan was recently ordered by Governor Seyi Makinde to relocate his office to the Ministry’s building.
The deputy governor, who spoke with newsmen at his new office, said his resumption was in compliance with the directive of the constituted authority in the state.
Governor Makinde had recently ordered the relocation of the embattled deputy governor to the Ministry of Environment.
The deputy governor was also served a letter in that regard.
But Olaniyan, who said that obedience had always been his virtue, said he was satisfied with his new place, adding that he was comfortable with every decision made by the state governments regarding the relocation of his office.
The Oyo deputy governor said, ‘I have been in the civil service for 28 years. Go and ask about me from those who know me. I have never been served a query before. A sitting governor served me a letter of relocation, why should this be an exception?
Olaniyan, who noted that he still remains committed to his office, said nothing would deter him from carrying out his official duties as the deputy Governor of his state.
Olaniyan said he didn’t believe nor share the same thought with those who believe that he was being witch hunted by the sitting governor because of his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
Several controversies had been linked to the embattled deputy governor since his defection to the All progressives Congress from the Peoples’Democratic Party.
Olaniyan had received a petition from members of the state House of Assembly, accusing him of several misconducts, which may be tantamount to his impeachment after a final legal impeachment process.
