Nigerians slam Gov Adeleke For Appointing Nephew Who Recently Finished NYSC As Board Chairman


Nigerians on social media have criticised Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, for appointing his relative into his cabinet.

It was gathered that Governor Adeleke appointed Tunji Adeleke, the son of his late elder brother and ex-governor, Isiaka Adeleke, as board chairman of Local Government Service Commission.

Overtnews reports that Nigerians took to social media to express their displeasure on the governor for making such appointment.

According to reports, Tunji graduated from Adeleke University in 2020 and had his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in 2022.

This, however, did not go down well with many after barely two weeks the Governor appointed the wife of his late elder brother Adenike Adeleke as a state commissioner.

This has caused a stir on social media as the Governor was heavily criticised.

A Twitter user, @Realadeshina, wrote: “Congratulations Tunji as Osun State Chairman board of local government. This disgrace is getting too much.”

@simplysnipe said “Most people didn’t know or heard of the guy before, now they know him. I’m just loving the news coming out of Osun, the second Edo State. Next now is for our dancing governor to be commissioning disgraceful projects as an achievement but Osun people will blame the president.”

@IkotunEmmy said, “ I told them when they were shouting “imole”. Adeleke should be ready to face a massive vote-out in the next election. Osun does not fall for mediocrity twice. The unfortunate thing is retrogression the state would have suffered.”

Similarly, @MustyOsun said, “I never knew we could still operate a constitutional monarchical system.”

Akin Akinwale wrote: “Whatever appointment Ademola Adeleke is making, whatever ineptitude he is displaying, it serves Osun State people right.

“That said, I don’t have a problem with appointing your family members into your government (silly tho’). But I am after the competence. Is Tunji Jnr competent? If he is, all the best.”
