The Governor of Osun State, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, has inaugurated his cabinet some 13 months after he won the election which he won on September 28, 2018, which means that he manned the affairs of the state as one-man-show for over one year.

Members of the new cabinet, on Thursday, took oaths of office as Governor Oyetola swore them in and warned them to shun corrupt acts.

Speaking during the swearing in ceremony held in his office, Oyetola charged them to quickly adapt to the contents of the administration’s development agenda.
He said: “Ensure you go about your duties with probity and transparency. These are the elements that would ensure stellar performance in the face of extant limited resources and earn the trust of the people.
“As heads of ministries, you are our delivery channels. I charge you to harness the available human and material resources to fulfil our promises to the people.
“A performance charter will be given to you to guide your role in delivery on the agenda. There will be service delivery and evaluating unit to assess your performance and productivity from time to time.
