Becareful, You'll Come Under Intense Scrutiny - Abiodun Warns His Cabinet

•Governor Abiodun

 Governor Dapo Abiodun on Monday told his cabinet members to brace up to the responsibilities and challenges of their new offices, as they would come under intense public scrutiny. 

Abiodun said that there would be a greater burden on them to live above board and be morally upright, charging them to be role models, manage expectations and join him in advancing the goals of even development across the State.

The Governor gave the advice  at an orientation programme organised for commissioners and special advisers in his Oke - Mosan Governor's Office, Abeokuta, the state capital.

He reminded the appointees that their conduct and utterances would now be thoroughly scrutinized  differently  by the prying eyes of the public.

He also urged the cabinet members to join him as partners in progress like the civil servants who, he added, are the engine room of governance.

He also  stressed  that as worthy partners and  anchors of the bureaucratic structures upon which the  programmes and policies of his administration rest, they  should forge a seamless and cordial work relationship with the civil servants.
He described the civil servants as dedicated, efficient and committed professionals. 
"You are now public servants and have joined the league of politically exposed people. Your conduct, utterances and public personality will now come under intense public scrutiny, so be guided accordingly.

"To achieve optimally, you will need to work with and regard the Ogun State public servants as partners and anchors of the bureaucratic structures required to deliver on our programmes and policies. You will find in Ogun State public servants the most dedicated, efficient and committed professionals. 

"They are the inheritors of the proud legacies of the Ogun State Public Service. So, with the combination of political appointees, who are best breed and the public servants that rank top in the Country, the stage is now set for a new Ogun State of our collective dreams," he said.

The Governor, while describing the newly assembled Executive Council members as the most star-studded Council in the Country, said that he would provide the right leadership as the captain of the team.

"This administration has arguably the most star-studded cabinet in the Country: various expertise, different backgrounds, and even various but complementary flavours have been brought together. 

"As the captain of this team, I want to assure you that I will provide the right leadership for you to blossom as individual stars and for our team to record achievements that are greater than the sum of individual  accomplishments," he said.

The Governor added that each of the cabinet members was chosen based on track records and on the basis that he or she would contribute immensely to growth and development of the State.

He added that the new cabinet members must all come on board with a mindset of team work that would "generate a new and higher momentum."

The orientation program for the new cabinet members had retired Head of Service, Chief Dipo Odulate, Mrs. Modupe Adekunle and the Director, Code of Conduct Bureau in the State, Mr. Segun Rabiu as resource persons.
