“Ladies and gentlemen, the governor deserves huge commendation not only for the good work he has been doing in the last 10 months, but also for his good plans and the brilliant approach at implementing them.
“I also want to commend the quality of people nominated for his cabinet. No doubt, the governor has to his credit a high quality of the personalities that would assist him in executing his lofty plans successfully.
”He urged the Commissioners/Special Advisers- designated to work for Mr. Governor with good team spirits and with the interest of people at heart as this would assist them in helping the governor to execute his development agenda for the good people of the state.

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Prince Gboyega Famodun, thanked the governor for giving the party the opportunity to select the best hands into his cabinet.
“We thank the governor for allowing the party to make very strong and reasonable inputs in the constitution of the cabinet. We thank the governor for the privilege and the party will never take such privilege for granted,” Famodu said.
