Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has re-appointed Barr Taiwo Adeoluwa as Secretary to the State Government.
Governor Amosun, while charging the state scribe who took his oath of office and oath of allegiance in the presence of the Deputy Governor, Yetunde Onanuga, Head of Service, Mrs Modupe Adekunle and Permanent Secretaries at the council chambers of the Governor’s Office, said the only reason for his re-appointment was his good performance during the first term.
He advised him to work harder in giving dividends of democracy to the people, saying, “The first term feats were building blocks for the second term expectations.
“The only reason for your re-appointment was because you worked well. We have to continue to demonstrate that we mean well for our people by giving them things that will make life more comfortable.
“The works we did in our first term are building blocks for second term expectations. Your re-appointment requires more hard work as we strive to move the state forward,” Amosun said.
In his response, Barr Adeoluwa who pledged to remain faithful and loyal to the Amosun-led government, called on the Governor to count on him for continued dedication.
Adeoluwa holds a Masters degree in Law from the University of Lagos. He is the first SSG to be so re-appointed consecutively in Ogun State.
Meanwhile, Governor Amosun began the first day in his second term journey with the inspection of guard of honour mounted by the Nigeria Police attached to his Oke-Mosan office before embarking on inspection of offices within the State Secretariat.
The Governor was accompanied by his Deputy, Head of Service, Permanent Secretaries, and members of the Ogun State Correspondents Chapel.
Amosun noted that the long awaited Local Council Development Areas, LCDAs, would be taken to the 8thLegislature that would be inaugurated in few days for approval, pointing out that elections would be conducted in all Local Government and Council Development Areas.
“Our plan this second term is to deepen our IGR to further ensure the completion of on-going and proposed projects. But I believe we would work towards achieving a system –driven environment in service delivery and project execution.
“As soon as the 8th Legislature is inaugurated, we would take the issue of Local Council Development Areas to the members for approval, because elections would be conducted across the local government areas and new LCDAs,” Amosun said.‎
