In his speech at the packed to capacity venue, Governor Amosun warned the newly appointed commissioners, senior special assistants and senior consultants against looting or mismanaging the resources of the state.
The governor noted that they must avoid ostentatious lifestyle and looting which might soil their reputation, considering the new change mantra both at the federal and the state levels.
He said, “You must be conscious and careful in your dealings and avoid any financial profligacy and/or impropriety that will put your name into disrepute.
“Be aware that the change mantra of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has percolated down and the eagle eyes of the anti-graft agencies are everywhere.”
While informing the Exco Members that work will begin at the next day, he promised Ogun State indigenes especially those in rural areas to expect rapid development, noting that it was the reason the Deputy Governor will be supervising the Ministry.
He tasked indigenes not to make too much financial demands of commissioners, as they have been appointed to serve the state and not some persons or interests.
