The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo state has described a former deputy deputy governor in the state, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan, and the former Minister of Communications, Chief Adebayo Shittu as deserving of their appointments by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to serve on the Governing Council Boards of some federal government-owned tertiary institutions.

Olaniyan was on Thursday inaugurated as the Chairman, Governing Council of the Federal College of Education (Special), Oyo while Shittu got sworn-in as the Chairman, Governing Council of the Federal University of Medical Science, Abakaliki, Ebonyi state.

Barrister Mubo Adelabu also became the Chairman, Governing Council of the Federal Polytechnic, Ayede, Oyo state alongside other Oyo APC faithful and Indigenes of the Pacesetter state.

In a statement issued on Thursday and made available to journalists in Ibadan by its Publicity Secretary, Olawale Sadare, Oyo APC appealed for calm among party faithful assuring them that “President Tinubu would carry everyone along in his efforts to deliver on all promises made during the electioneering as he needs the cooperation and understanding of all and sundry to fix all the challenges facing Nigeria.

“The appointments of Engr. Rauf Olaniyan and Chief Adebayo Shittu as well as all others to serve on the Governing Councils of some Federal Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education and their subsequent inauguration on Thursday is another pointer to the fact that President Tinubu would not leave the Pacesetter state behind in the scheme of things as we, at Oyo APC, remain steadfast in our efforts to support his administration.
