James Ogunnaike – Abeokuta

Following series of reactions that trailed the appointment of Prof Sidi Osho by the Ogun State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun and her purported clearance by the Ogun State House of Assembly,  as a commissioner, the State government has said it will soon make public its stands on her eligibility.

Speaking to our correspondent, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Kunle Somorin, said Prof Osho is still Commissioner-designate, saying that she was not sworn-in alongside other Commissioners and Special Advisers to the governor.

It would be recalled that Prof. Sidi Osho was alleged to have hidden some of her working experiences from the profile she presented to the state government, especially as it related to Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State.

But in a telephone interview with our correspondent, Somorin said the government is looking into the issues raised.
