Abiodun appoints Talabi SSG, Amosun’s ex-strategist as Chief of Staff


Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has appointed Mr. Olatokunbo Joseph Talabi as the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) and Mr. Shuaib Afolabi Salisu as his Chief of Staff.
Abiodun, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr. Kunle Somorin in Abeokuta, said 57-year-old Talabi, until his appointment, was the Chief Executive Officer of Superflux International Limited, a market leader in security printing.
He holds a Masters degree in Business Administration from the University of Lagos and was also trained at the Citibank School of Banking, Long Island, New York.
A pioneer official of Guarantee Trust Bank (GTBank) where he worked in several executive positions, he also worked at The Nigerian Economist, gaining insight on product performance, sales, marketing and financial management.
Salisu, a 55-year-old computer scientist, was close to the immediate past Governor of the State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, as a strategist before the duo parted ways due to irreconciliable differences.
Under Amosun, he served as Deputy Chief of Staff and later Acting Chief of Staff between 2011 and 2014.
In 1986, he graduated with second class (upper) degree in Computer Science from the University of Lagos; from where he also got two masters degrees, an MBA in 2003 and MSc in Computer Science in 2012.
While announcing the appointments, Abiodun expressed optimism that the rich pedigree of the duo and their track record of excellence, commitment and versatility will help his mission to institutionalise good governance, banish poverty and give dividends of democracy to the citizens and residents of the State.
Both appointments take immediate effect.
