By Jamiu Ganiyu

At a time political office holders are leveraging on the opportunity provided by the various social media platforms to communicate their activities, policies and programmes to their citizens, osun.life has observed that the First Lady of Osun State, Mrs. Kafayat Oyetola has overtaken her husband, Governor Gboyega Oyetola, in this regard.

osun.life reports that from the careful monitoring of the social media presence of government officials, its been discovered that while the First Lady, Kafayat Oyetola is timely in posting her daily activities on her Instagram account (@kolaitanoyetola), the case is different for that of the Governor of the State, Gboyega Oyetola.

Governor Oyetola who maintains a facebook page and a twitter account @GboyegaOyetola, has since the inception of his tenure ten months ago, failed to make a strong impression or keep up with the standard set by his predecessor.

Governor Oyetola is the only governor in South West Nigeria whose account is not being updated with his numerous daily activities.

While some of these activities are available on accounts of his sympathizers, it is always difficult for people and the mainstream media to take the content serious in this era of fake news.

As at the time of this publication, Governor Oyetola last tweet was 29days ago, a tweet on the 15th of August and a Retweet on 24th of August when he spoke about the initiative of Osun Health Insurance Scheme.
