Chief Olusegun Agagu

Olusegun Kokumo Agagu was governor of Ondo State in Nigeria from May 29, 2003 until February 2009, when a court voided his reelection as governor on account of electoral irregularities. He was replaced as governor of Ondo State by Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, his political rival, based on a court injunction.

Olusegun which means “God is victorious” was born on February 16, 1948 in Okitipupa, Ondo State.

He was a member of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) until his death on September 13, 2013.


Agagu commenced his elementary education at St. Luke’s Anglican School, (now known as St. Paul’s Anglican School), Okitipupa, in 1954.

In 1958, he moved to live with his cousin, Edward Fagbohun in Ibadan, where he continued his primary education at Ebenezer African Church School, Oke-Ado, Ibadan.

In 1959 he transferred to Kano where he studied at the Ebenezer Methodist School and Baptist Primary School Sabon-Gari, Kano. He then moved back to Ebenezer African Church School, Ibadan where he completed his primary education in 1960. Thereafter, he was in Ibadan Grammar School between 1961 and 1967 where he passed his West African School Certificate and the Higher School Certificate Examinations.

He was admitted to the University of Ibadan in 1968 to study Botany but later changed to Geology in which he graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Second Class Upper Division, inn 1971. As an undergraduate, his academic record was replete with laurels and prizes.

Agagu went to University of Texas between 1973 and 1974 for his Master’s degree in Geology. He later obtained a Ph.D Degree in Petroleum Geology from the University of Ibadan in 1978.

Agagu was appointed former president, Olusegun Obasanjo as his first minister of Aviation in 1999.

He reportedly slumped and died on September 13, 2013 in his Lagos residence.
