Seyi Makinde

Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has assigned portfolios to the 14 commissioners inaugurated at the state secretariat at Agodi on Thursday, TOPNAIJA.NG can confirm.

The governor said the 14 commissioners were picked to help him to realise his campaign dream of rescuing Oyo State from its ‘despair status’.
Commending the commissioners for heeding his calls to serve the state, Makinde said, “With the formidable track record and CVs you all possess, I am happy that you are not working against me.

“Just as a CEO cannot function without a trusted and tested board of advisors that key into his visions, Oyo State cannot make the desired progress unless we work together.

“I have presented my vision for the people of Oyo State. As you take up this appointment, I believe you are keying into this vision. As I said in my inaugural speech, I will delegate effectively, but the buck will always stop with me. I hope that you will likewise take responsibility and not pass the buck.

“So, come with me, work with me, let us take Oyo State to greater glory. Together, we can do this.

“I have had one-on-one interactions with all the 14 of you. Your various endeavours hitherto have prepared you for this moment. You had successful and fulfilling individual careers in the private and public sectors.”
