About the Most-powerful Permanent Secretary In Oyo


It is no longer news that Hannah Oguneko is regarded as the most-powerful Permanent Secretary in the Oyo State Civil Service.

Despite being a female, she is said to not only have direct access to the governor but has always got whatever she wants from the government.

She is said to have influenced the recent appointment of Caretaker Committee Chairmen in the state’s local government and local council development areas recently announced by Governor Abiola Ajimobi.

Even when she was summoned by the state House of Assembly to explain her role in the appointments, the ‘Margaret Thatcher” of Oyo State Civil Service defended herself as being a civil servant and not a politician, hence could not wield such power as being rumoured in some corners.
