Oyo State Deputy Governor, Barrister Bayo Lawal is to act as the Governor of the state for 23 days with effect from today.
This followed a letter by Governor Seyi Makinde informing to the state House of Assembly over his plans to embark on Leave from work.
Governor Makinde in the letter officially transmitted his executive power to his deputy, Barrister Bayo Abdulroheem Lawal to act in his stead for the period of his Leave.
Makinde notified the House that his Leave will last for a period of 30 days.
The Governor’s Leave begins Thursday 11th of August and ends on 3rd September, 2022.
Makinde based his decision on the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution under section 190(1) which mandates the Governor to formally write the legislature to the effect.
The Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Honourable Debo Ogundoyin, who confirmed the Governor’s letter titled “Vacation Declaration” at Thursday’s plenary sitting said the Governor’s action was commendable because the action has further shown Makinde’s passion for Oke-ogun.
The Kishi born Bayo Lawal by this development has become the first Oke-ogun personality to occupy the number seat in the state in acting capacity.
