Of course, this is long overdue, Aregbesola admits to newly sworn-in commissioners
Osun Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has inaugurated his cabinet, urging the members to work for the development and progress of the state
The governor had been without cabinet members since his inauguration for second term on November 27, 2014.
Aregbesola, on April 11, 2017, had, however, sent 39 names of nominees to the State House of Assembly for screening and confirmation.
In his remarks at the ceremony, Aregbesola said the inauguration of his cabinet members was long overdue.
“I congratulate all the appointees for being considered worthy of service to our dear state and for scaling the hurdle of screening.
“Many of you served in the first term; the rest are fresh hands.
”Of course, this is long overdue. It should have come up immediately after my inauguration on November 27, 2014.
”As you all know, we were hamstrung by dire financial constraint.
“Our second term coincided with the onset of a national economic disaster,” he said.
Speaking on behalf of newly sworn-in cabinet members, the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Bashir Ajibola, assured the people of the state of their readiness to consolidate on the legacies built by the Aregbesola administration in the last six years.
