Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, on Friday, swore in 20 commissioners and 22 special advisers into his cabinet.
The appointees were sworn in at the Obas Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, following the approval of the Ogun State House of Assembly.
Abiodun, who did not announce the portfolios of each of the appointees during the swearing-in ceremony, mulled the creation of new ministries to accommodate more people in his cabinet.
Speaking shortly after the appointees took the oath of office, the governor charged them to prepare for the challenges ahead and to see their appointment as a unique privilege and a call to service.
Abiodun also charged the cabinet members to be professional and prudent, urging them to pay constant attention to their jobs.
He enjoined them to work together as a team to achieve his administration’s set goals.
“You new commissioners and special advisers have been chosen and found worthy among many others. You must see your appointments as a clarion call to continue to render selfless service, dedication, cohesiveness, inclusivity, and visibility with the new team.
“You must always have it at the back of your mind that your appointments are opportunities to prove your mettle,” the governor advised.
