The Secretary to the State Government, Mrs Olubanwo Adeosun, Head of Service, Mrs Amidat Agboola and the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, Taiwo Adisa were part of the delegation that paid the visit.
Meanwhile, the government of Oyo State, on Friday, honoured the late Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Hon. Kehinde Ayoola, by flying its flag at half-mast.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Seyi Makinde, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mrs. Olubamiwo Adeosun, gave the directive on behalf of the governor.
The statement further indicated that all state activities were at low-key as a mark of honour to the departed Commissioner.
