After the inauguration of the members of the 9th Ogun State House of Assembly and the subsequent election of Principal Officers of the House in a rancour free process, the Honourable members paid me a familiarization visit in my office this afternoon.
While introducing his colleagues, the newly elected Speaker, Rt. Hon Taiwo Olakunle Oluomo expressed the House readiness to support our administration by enacting laws and putting up legislations that will assist us to achieve our agenda to build a better future for our dear state.
In my response, I commended their level of maturity and ability to make the process a participatory one. To me, there was nothing more heartwarming than the fact that I was privileged to receive one of the arms of government that had achieved such feat in a peaceful and well coordinated manner.
I charged the newly elected officers not to see the opportunity as their right, but appreciate the fact that they were given additional responsibilities to serve, demonstrate leadership and character, while urging them to carry other members along in their legislative activities.
While rounding up my address, I seized the opportunity to reiterate our administration’s commitment towards providing good, focused and qualitative governance and to create the enabling environment for a public private sector partnership, which is fundamental to the creation of an enduring economic development and individual prosperity of the people of Ogun.
