The venue of the event was filled to capacity as the “Comrade Governor was sworn-in”.

The Governor said ”before 2008, our politics was being manipulated by a few godfathers, the economy of the state was in shambles, our children were in schools without books, they were studying in classrooms with potholes.. Even the poor had no choice but to send their children to ill-equipped private school.. nothing seemed to be working, people were sacked without benefits being paid. That was where we were coming from. Everything they have said was impossible, we have seen that it is possible. We have now seen that what was lacking was God-fearing leadership”

Governor Oshiomole also disclosed that ”when we conduct the next local government election, we will make sure that one man one vote prevails. We will also put measures in place so that Chairmen will not be able to travel out without the permission of the Governor so that they will experience the life of the people in their localities.”
