Mr. Rauf Olaniyan

Oyo Deputy Governor, Mr. Rauf Olaniyan, on Friday, led the state delegation on a condolence visit to the family of Kehinde Ayoola, the State Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, who died on Thursday morning.

Condoling with the wife of the deceased, Prof. Olukemi Ayoola, the deputy governor described the demise of Ayoola as unexpected and a great loss of an active player in Gov. Seyi Makinde’s administration.

He said late Ayoola was never a dormant member of the state executive but a resourceful and active contributor during state executive meetings.

He lamented that Ayoola died when Gov. Makinde and his team were trying to reshape and reset Oyo State from where they met it.

The deputy governor, however, said the deceased came and conquered by playing his own role in reshaping the state.
