ABEOKUTA – Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has congratulated the three ministers appointed from the state by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Recall, three persons of Ogun State extraction were appointed by President Tinubu assigned portfolios recently.
They are Mr. Wale Edun, the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy; Dr. Bosun Tijani, Minister of Communication, Innovation and Digital Economy, and Dr. Ishak Salako, Minister of State, Environment and Ecological Management.
In a statement issued by Lekan Adeniran, the Chief Press Secretary to Gov. Abiodun, and made available to newsmen in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Friday, August 18, 2023, Gov. Abiodun lauded President Tinubu on the portfolios, saying that they reflected the belief in the capacity and competence of the Ministers-Designate.
According to him, the nomination of the trio and the choice of portfolios would prove critical in actualizing the President’s Renewed Hope agenda.
His words: “No doubt, the nomination of Mr. Wale Edun, Dr Bosun Tijani and Dr Ishaq Salako and the subsequent assignment of portfolios reflects President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s resolve to turn things around in the country and give hope to millions of Nigerians.”
While wishing the Ministers-Designate, who are set to resume office on Monday, August 21, 2023, the best of luck as they discharge responsibilities to the President and their fatherland, the governor urged them to undertake programmes and policies that would lift Nigeria and Nigerians to unprecedented heights and justify the confidence reposed by Nigerians in electing the Tinubu administration into power during the 2023 polls.
