The Ekiti state government on Wednesday announced the resignation of the state commissioner for Works and Transportation, Kayode Oso.
The announcement was contained in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ado Ekiti by the Secretary to the State Government, Modupe Alade.
According to the statement, Mr. Oso, known to be one of the closest political associates of Governor Ayo Fayose, resigned on health grounds.
“Mr Kayode Oso has worked assiduously to add value to this administration going by his effort towards the development of our state.
“His letter of resignation has been fully accepted by His Excellency, Mr Ayo Fayose.
“Oso, in his notice to the governor, stated that he decided to resign to attend to his health challenges.
“We wish him quick recovery, the Government of Ekiti State will stand by him while he overcomes his health challenges,” Ms. Alade said.
NAN recalls that Mr. Oso, during the first term in office of Mr. Fayose, served as Chief of Staff to the governor and was later appointed works commissioner.
Mr. Oso, a native of Ado Ekiti, was again reappointed Works Commissioner on October 16, 2014, soon after the governor was sworn-in for a second term.
