Elder Citizens Protest Against Appointment Of 27-Year-Old Fakorede As Commissioner In Oyo State

Some senior citizens in Oyo State seem not to be happy about the appointment of Seun Fakorede, a 27-year-old graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University as a commissioner in Governor Makinde’s cabinet.

They registered their displeasure at the appointment by taking to the streets in protest.

A Twitter user identified as @PatriotAwaking who shared a picture from the scene tweeted that some senior citizens were protesting because Fakorede was appointed as commissioner for youth and sport in the state.

It will be recalled that a multitude of reactions poured in from Nigerians in general as news of the appointment of Fakorede by Governor Makinde got to public knowledge. Most of the reactions were, however, positive, unlike what is being noticed now.
