    Aiyedatiwa gives reason for nominating Adelami as Ondo deputy governor Published By: Paul Dada

    The Ondo State Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa says he nominated Olayide Adelami as deputy governor of the state and Tayo Oluwatuyi as Secretary to the State Government  mainly because of their experience.

    The Governor said this as disclosed in  a statement by his Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Ondo State, Prince Ebenezer Adeniyan.  Aiyedatiwa  who was meeting with Adelami and Oluwatuyi for the first time since their appointment,  said: “The time for a deputy governor has come, because the responsibilities have been immense, and I am grateful for the capable hands of Dr. Adelami and the prompt action of the SSG, Hon. Oluwatuyi, who has already begun his duties.”

    Adelami  had earlier said  his nomination by Aiyedatiwa was not expected  as he only had his eyes on the federal appointment he was pursuing.

    He said: “I never contested for deputy governor; I was looking for a federal appointment when I was called to be a deputy. I do not take this opportunity for granted.

    “Divine providence made this happen. I will serve the people of Ondo State to the best of my ability.”

    The deputy governor  designate who will be sworn in next week, said he would work with the governor to move the state forward.
