Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa of Ondo State has said that he made the right choices in picking Hon Tayo Oluwatuyi and Dr. Olayide Adelami as Secretary to the State Government (SSG) and Deputy Governor respectively.

Aiyedatiwa said he was satisfied following the support that greeted his decision. The governor, who spoke in Akure on Friday shortly after his return from Abuja said both men were qualified and well-equipped to carry out the responsibilities entrusted to them.

Both the Deputy Governor designate and the SSG had mobilised their supporters to the Akure Airport to welcome Aiyedatiwa from Abuja.

Aiyedatiwa said he received calls and messages from notable personalities, including traditional rulers and religious leaders, commending both appointments

He said: “The time for a Deputy Governor has come, because the responsibilities have been immense, and I am grateful for the capable hands of Dr. Adelami and the prompt action of the SSG, Hon. Oluwatuyi, who has already begun his duties.

“Two days ago, we dissolved the former executive council, not in discord but as part of the necessary transition.

I presented the name of Dr. Olayide Adelami to the House of Assembly for consideration, and it was promptly approved. “I am deeply moved by the outpouring of support and the warm welcome orchestrated by the Deputy Governor designate and the SSG.

Their initiative to express appreciation through this rally speaks volumes about their dedication to serving the people and fostering unity within the state”.
