By Dipo Olowookere

Founder of foremost budgets critic platform, BudgIT, Mr Seun Onigbinde, has been appointed by federal government as a Technical Adviser in charge of Budget and Planning in the Ministry of Budget and National Planning.

He will be working directly with the Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, Mr Clement Agba.

Mr Onigbinde, a native of Oyo State born in Osogbo, Osun State, is a Nigerian entrepreneur and open data analyst.

He has been very critical of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, calling for more transparency in the running of affairs of the nation by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He is a graduate of University of Agriculture, Abeokuta where he obtained a bachelor of engineering (B.Eng.) in Electrical/Electronics Engineering and the Stanford university graduate school of business where he completed the executive program in social entrepreneurship.

His appointment has generated mixed reactions as some have congratulated him and others wondering why he accepted to work for a government he once criticized.

Dipo Olowookere is a journalist based in Nigeria that has passion for reporting business news stories. At his leisure time, he watches football and supports 3SC of Ibadan. Mr Olowookere can be reached via dipo.olowookere@businesspost.ng
