Governor Ibikunle Amosun, on Tuesday evening hands over the reins of power to his successor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, declaring earlier that he had achieved more for Ogun state than his two predecessors – Aremo Segun Osoba and Gbenga Daniel put together.
The handover rite which took place at the Oke – Mosan Governor’s Office, about 35 minutes after Amosun had pulled out in a motorcade, was performed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Taiwo Adeoluwa, while the Abiodun’s Deputy, Engr. Noimot Salako – Oyedele, received from him, the hand over notes comprising Interim Report, Audited Financial statement of the state as at December 2018, documents on Homeowners Charter and another detailing the affairs of the state.
Adeoluwa who chaired the state government Transition Committee team, lauded the Mrs Salako – Oyedele and her team for their understanding and patience while the period of the interface between the two groups lasted.
The Deputy Governor assured him that Abiodun’s government would study the documents to ascertain the true position of things, lamenting that they had expected interim report to come from the state government prior to the handover but that did not happen.
Apparently dissatisfied with the situation, she said the out gone administration had now imposed on them homework in respect of the documents.
The Deputy Governor also declared that the new administration would review all contracts on uncompleted projects of Ibikunle Amosun in the state to determine what needs to be salvaged in the interest of Ogun people.
“I was expecting an interim report that we can examine now. But it is as if you want to give us some homework to do and I can assure you we are up to the task.”
“Our pledge to the people of Ogun State is that they will continue to enjoy good governance. Our administration will review on-going projects,” Mrs Salako – Oyedele said.
