Oyo seems to have a handful of young people at the helm of its affairs and they include 31-year-old Adebo Ogundoyin who emerged as the state’s house of assembly speaker and 27-year-old Seun Fakorede recently nominated as a commissioner by Governor Seyi Makinde.
Fakorede is said to be an Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) class of 2016 civil engineering graduate. He is also an entrepreneur, consultant and author who runs Home Advantage Africa (HAA), a non-profit organization devoted to promoting local dominance and global stardom in Africa through digital storytelling and other projects of similar ilk.
He was nominated to become one of the state’s commissioner alongside Alhaja Faosat Joke Sunni and Professor Rapheal Afonja. If successfully screened by the state’s assembly, they will be joining 14 others inaugurated last week.
