■ charges them to work as a team to make a difference in lives of people
Osun state governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke on Wednesday swore in new commissioners and permanent secretaries in the state, with a charge that they should work as a team with a common goal to make a difference in the lives of people in the state.
Speaking at the ceremony held at the state secretariat in Abere, the governor further reiterated that, “there won’t be any room for solo actors in our cabinet. Our team of commissioners are therefore a product of stakeholders’ choices. It is important to affirm that my preoccupation throughout the process was a merit-based pathway.
“This passion of mine for putting together qualified hands was reflected in the template the party applied throughout. Now that the team is assembled, let me share a brief about my vision for the state.
“As we all know, I am a team player. There won’t be any room for solo actors in our cabinet. You must work as a team with a common goal to make a difference in the lives of our people.
“Above all, my leadership is about due process and the rule of law. You must not cut corners. I will not compromise transparency and accountability.
“As you are coming on board, the task before us is enormous. We have a duty to turn our adversity into assets. We must re-engineer our economy, generate wealth, engage our youth, deepen our economic base, embrace the digital economy and implement our climate action agenda.
“We are the innovators to overcome our state’s deficit across sectors. I know you are full of new options for the greater Osun agenda. I believe your heads and hands are full of solutions to the governance problems of our time. Bring them on.
“You will find in me a receptive and supportive head of administration. To harness our potential and capacities, an executive retreat is in the making for all top appointees and officials. At that event, an expanded five-point agenda of the administration will be a focus. We will leave the retreat better equipped to deliver on our mission and vision as a government
“My team will redouble its efforts to deliver on our election promises. We will sustain our high-performing rating.
If we can deliver so much with a Governor-in-Council, our team will be superlative as a State Executive Council.
“It is, therefore, my singular honour and privilege to inaugurate this new set of highly qualified commissioners and permanent secretaries,” he said.
