The Oyo state house of assembly has confirmed Barrister Lateef Idowu Oyeleke as commissioner designate following the demise of late Hon. Kehinde Ayoola.
Mouthpiece NGR recalls late Kehide Ayoola gave up the ghost few weeks ago after a brief illness.
Governor Seyi Makinde had last week sought the approval and confirmation of the house for Barr Lateef Idowu Olaleye through a letter from the state executive addressed to the house through the speaker to fill the vacuum left behind by the former commissioner for Environment and Natural resources.
Oyeleke appeared before the House for screening on Tuesday as directed by the House during its last plenary sitting.
The commissioner nominee while reacting to a question from Hon Olawunmi Oladeji representing Ogbomoso North on what could be done to correct the idea of erecting kiosks along roads, covets, and outside school fences across the state, explained that if confirmed as a commissioner, he will set up a taskforce with the approval of the governor to thoroughly access the situation on where they get approval for such erections before further actions will be taken.
The Speaker, Rt Hon Adebo Ogundoyin in his brief remark before the confirmation said that Barr Oyeleke has served the state and the party meritoriously in different capacities adding that the house had no doubt in his ability to deliver on his new responsibility and therefore, directed the commissioner nominee to take a bow and go.
