The newly sworn in governor of Ondo state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa has started shopping for his deputy.

According to Daily Gazette source, stakeholders are currently lobbying the new Governor through notable personalities in the state for possible consideration.

Since after his swearing in, politicians in the state have been making moves to be favoured.

However, Aiyedatiwa may announce his deputy next week after consulting with President Bola Tinubu on his final choice.

Sources said the governor is looking towards the Central Senatorial District of the state to pick his deputy.

Aiyedatiwa’s choice, according to sources, is the Commissioner for Energy and Mineral Resources, Razaq Obe, but party leaders prefer former Secretary to the State Government and a former member of the National Assembly, Sunday Abegunde.


Obe was made a commissioner following the recommendation of Betty Akeredolu, wife of the late governor, Betty Akeredolu.

Abegunde, who is an ally of President Tinubu, was recently appointed as the Executive Director, Corporate Services of the Niger Delta Development Commission Commission, NDDC.

Obe and Abegunde both hail from the central senatorial district.

Recall that Obe, an ally of Aiyedatiwa, was the commissioner that raised the alarm that the signature of the late governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, had been forged by some cabals.
