Governor Ademola Adeleke has submitted a full list of commissioners and special advisers to the Osun State House of Assembly through the House Speaker, Adewale Egbedun.

This comes barely seven months after Adeleke was sworn in on November 27 and over a month after his victory in the July 16, 2022 governorship election was upheld at the Supreme Court.

The list of new appointees is to be read out at the plenary session of the assembly when it resumes from its recess early next week.

The House of Assembly had gone on recess after the inauguration to allow the new lawmakers to get prepared for legislative business and for the logistics of house operations to be firmed up for the newly inaugurated assembly.

The spokesperson for the governor, Olawale Rasheed, disclosed this on Tuesday in Osogbo while briefing journalists.

“His Excellency has finalised the commissioners’ list and submitted same to the State Assembly. The House is resuming next week and, expectedly, the House Speaker will disclose the names to his colleagues to commence screening of nominees,” Rasheed said.

“The governor and the state leadership have done the needful and the public should expect the list to be made public sooner than later.

“The delay was clearly due to many factors, namely the protracted litigation on the outcome of the governorship election and the general elections covering the state assembly, National Assembly and the presidential elections. The good thing is that the long wait is over. The long-awaited commissioners’ list here.”
