Oyo Head of Service’s son caught in ‘ghost job’ scandal

The son of the Oyo State head of service, Ayobami Agboola has been caught in a job scandal after he engaged in an online argument.

A  ‘ghost job’ is a common practice in state and federal civil service whereby names of non-workers widely known as ghost workers, are added into the workforce and used to receive illegal pay.


Ayobami’s role in the ‘ghost job’ scandal was made public after he and a former acquintance, Sulaimon Adesola got into an argument over the response of Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration to the Coronavirus pandemic in Oyo state.

While Ayobami insisted that Adesola’s criticism against Makinde’s administration was because he could not secure a “ghost job” under the government, Adesola fired back by stating it was the head of service’s son who promised to use his mother’s influence to secure him a slot.

The screenshots Adesola shared to back his claim compelled Ayobami into admitting that they had the conversation. The Head of Service’s son however denied being involved in a racketeering scheme and only egged him on because he was doing a pro bono work for him.
