‘Don’t put commissioners under pressure’ — Aiyedatiwa warns Ondo citizens


The governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has cautioned families and friends of the newly inaugurated commissioners in the state against putting them under undue pressure that could affect their performance as members of the State Executive Council, SEC.

Aiyedatiwa, who also warned the new cabinet members against corrupt tendencies, urged them to steer clear of acts capable of having a negative impact on the affairs of the state.

The governor stated this while swearing in no fewer than 12 commissioners at the weekend into the State Executive Council, SEC.

Aiyedatiwa, who urged the new cabinet members to justify their appointments through dedicated service, stressed that his administration will accelerate development and good governance.

The new commissioners are Segun Ayerin, Olaolu Akindolire, Alhaji Amidu Takuro, Banji Ajaka, Boye Ologbese, and Sunday Akinwalire.

Others include Deaconess Lola Fagbemi, Mr. Saka Ogunleye, Rasheed Badmus, Olayato Aribo, Adewale Akinlosotu, and Barr Gbenga Olaniyi.

Aiyedatiwa said: “You must excuse corruption or any act that is not conducive to good governance and overriding public interest.

“Thus, I like to implore all friends, families, and well-wishers of the new appointees to refrain from putting undue pressure on them so that they can concentrate and discharge their duties in the overall best interest of the state.

“Let me congratulate the newly inaugurated appointees for being worthy of consideration as honourable commissioners in Ondo State. Some of you are returning, while others are new commissioners.

“In the main, you have a duty to justify your appointment or reappointment, as the case may be. I must inform you that this administration is in a hurry to deliver on its mandate and make life more meaningful for the people.

“The torch of accelerated development that we hold aloft in trust for the people is irreversible. You must guard your loins and hit the ground running in your various offices. You must foster a good working relationship with the workers, especially the permanent secretaries and other accounting officers.

“Let us bear in mind that the government and people of Ondo State are united in their thirst for credible performance, development, and good governance.”
