Nine months after Gboyega Oyetola was sworn in as the governor of Osun State, he has refused to constitute his executive council.
Rather than appoint commissioners, Mr Oyetola is running selected ministries with supervisors.
Mr Oyetola was sworn in as Osun governor on November 27, 2018.
It appears that his administration is following the antecedent of the former governor, Rauf Aregbesola, who during his second term in office refused to appoint commissioners for more than a year due to what he tagged financial constraints.
While the constitution provides for the appointment of commissioners, Mr Oyetola simply used his discretion to appoint supervisors for some ministries he considers very important.
Seven supervisors have been appointed to do the work of commissioners over the ministries of works, finance, agriculture, home affairs, education and information.
The governor has “simply rendered other ministries useless”, a political analyst, Kehinde Orioye, said.
