Folorunso Folarin Coker, popularly referred to as Folly Coker, is a politician well known within the Lagos State Government circle. Folly Coker Public Service Career began under then Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s leadership in Lagos State in 1999. Not much is known publicly about Coker’s educational past and career growth prior to becoming Tinubu’s personal assistant in 1999. In 2003, Folorunso Folarin Coker rose to Deputy Chief of Staff to the State Government. During his tenure under Lagos State Government, he was one of the founders of the Lagos State Number Plate Production Authority (LSNPPA) and he served as Special Adviser to then Governor Babatunde Raji Fashion, on Central Business Districts for the state.
Further looking into his political career the past couple years, Folorunso Folarin Coker was one of the commissioners fired in 2016 from Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s Lagos State Government where he led the ministry of Tourism, Culture and Arts in Alausa, Ikeja. In 2017, he was surprisingly appointed Director-General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) by President Muhammadu Buhari. How much has tourism development improved in Nigeria since he assumed office? He is also part owner of the Don Jazzy led Mavin records that has produced hit songs for artists such as Dbanj and Tiwa Savage. Folorunso Folarin Coker was previously married to fashion designer and ceo of Tiffany Amber Retail, Folake Coker. In 2017, His name was on the list published by Panama Papers, of wealthy Nigerians who own mansions and companies in Panama, an offshore tax haven lucrative to money launderers. Today Folorunso Folarin Coker maintains a minimized profile as the Nigerian Financial Intelligence (NFI) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) are yet to conclude on the case that he diverted over 3 Billion Naira from LSNPPA to accounts owned by him and his wife, Aisha Rimi who was formerly married to Lateef Bello Osagie, younger brother to former Etisalat Nigeria boss, billionaire Hakeem Bello Osagie.
