The youth group has applauded the Governor’s decision to appoint Hon. Segun Ogunwuyi as the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Hon. Open Salawu as the Executive Assistant to the Governor, and the potential appointment of Barr. Olasunkanmi Olaleye and Mr. Dotun Oyelade as Commissioner-designate.
The Governor’s commitment to diversity and inclusion was further evident in the appointment of Hon. Oyedeji Ahmed as the Special Assistant on Public Affairs to the Deputy Governor, a position of significant influence and responsibility.
The youth group, representing various interests and communities across Ogbomoso, sees these appointments as a testament to Governor Seyi Makinde’s dedication to fostering unity and giving a voice to different segments of the population.
In a statement issued by the group, they highlighted the importance of such appointments in driving development and ensuring that the concerns of the local population are well-represented at the highest levels of government.
“While we commend Governor Seyi Makinde for his wise choice in selecting Ogbomoso indigenes for these key roles, we also appeal for more consideration in future appointments,” said Raheem Akande Kamoru, the PRO of the youth group.
Furthermore, the Ogbomoso Concerned Youth also expressed their commendation to Makinde on his efforts towards the appointment of Zaccheaus Labu Adedeji as Special Adviser to President Bola Tinubu on Revenue.

The group believes that these appointments will pave the way for effective governance, as the appointees possess a deep understanding of the local challenges and aspirations of the people they will serve.
Governor Seyi Makinde’s actions have set a positive precedent, not only for Ogbomoso but also for other regions seeking representation and inclusivity in government positions.
