Nigerians have praised Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, for nominating a 27-year-old graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Seun Fakorede, as a commissioner.
Mr Fakorede bagged a civil engineering degree in 2016. He was among three commissioner-nominees sent to the state House of Assembly for screening on Monday.
Speaker of the House, Adebo Ogundoyin, confirmed Fakorede’s nomination via Facebook.
“Let’s clear the air, the Oyo State House of Assembly has received the name of the 27-year-old Seun Fakorede of Ibarapaland as commissioner-nominee from the Oyo State government led by Governor Seyi Makinde,” Ogundoyin wrote.
Makinde had on August 15 sworn in 14 commissioners cleared by the assembly.
Since his inauguration, Makinde has been the toast of Nigerians, with nearly every decision he makes pleasing the majority.
Nigerians on Twitter have now hailed him for the nomination of a 27-year-old as commissioner.
