Oyo’s Governor Seyi Makinde, has sacked the Commissioner for Works, Infrastructure and Transport, Professor Raphael Afonja.

The governor, in a letter dated August 10, 2020 and signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Olubamiwo Adeosun, said the termination takes immediate effect.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, quoted the letter titled “Termination of appointment” as saying: “I wish to convey the approval of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde, on the termination of your appointment as Honourable Commissioner, with immediate effect.

“Consequent upon the above development, you are hereby directed to hand over all the government items in your possession to the Permanent Secretary (Ministry of Works, Infrastructure and Transport).

“I am to add that, your contribution within the time of your sojourn is appreciated and commendable, and therefore, wish you successes in your future endeavours. I thank you.”

In another development, the governor has also approved the redeployment of two Commissioners, who were asked to swap portfolios.

An internal memo signed by the SSG with the subject: “Redeployment of EXCO members” indicated that the Commissioner for Special Duties, Bayo Lawal, has been moved to the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, while Funmilayo Orisadeyi will move to the Ministry of Special Duties.
