Olaide Adelami has been sworn in as Deputy Governor of Ondo State.

He was sworn in on Thursday at the International Culture and Events Centre, Akure, the state capital, by the state’s Chief Judge, Justice Olusegun Odusola.

A former Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly, Adelami took his oath of office after being selected last Tuesday by the state’s Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa as his Deputy Governor, after which his name was sent to the State House of Assembly for screening and ratification.

The ceremony completed the change of guard that followed the death of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu last December and the swearing in of Aiyedatiwa as Ondo Governor.

At the ceremony on Thursday, Aiyedatiwa reiterated the commitment of his administration to the progress and development of Ondo State.

The new Deputy Governor appreciated the Governor for the opportunity to serve the state and promised to be committed to his duties and be loyal to the Governor.

Born in 1958, Adelami obtained his Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from the University of Lagos. He further got an MBA from Ogun State University, Ago-Iwoye.

He retired as the Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly in 2018.

Like the late Governor, Olaide Adelami is an indigene of Owo and was an aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ondo 2020 governorship race that Akeredolu won.
