Oladipupo Soyode, the younger brother to Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, wife of Nigerian Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has relocated to Abuja.
This, Happening.com.ng can tell you authoritatively. Oladipupo served as a Secretary to Apapa Local Government Area of Lagos State before Osun State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola appointed him as his Special Adviser on Culture and Tourism in Osun State.
His appointment in Osun was made when Prof. Osinbajo had not been elected, but as soon as he emerged Nigeria’s Vice President, pressure was said to have been mounted on him (Prof. Osinbajo) to tie down a Federal appointment for Oladipupo.
On the other hand, Mrs. Osinbajo, was rumoured to have on different occasions discussed the issue with her husband, who was said to be evasive, but allegedly informed her that he would try his best to make arrangement for him.
Meanwhile, while the appeal was ongoing, Oladipupo who was shuttling between Osun, Abuja, and Lagos State was still in Gov. Aregbesola’s cabinet, actively serving as a Special Adviser.
Findings revealed that the Vice President may have fuifilled his promise as Oladipupo has left Gov. Aregbesola’s government and relocated to Aso Rock, Abuja. Sources further said that Oladipupo’s wife is also working with Dolapo.
In case you dont know, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo and Oladipupo Soyode are grandchildren of late Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
