Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun on Tuesday, met with the newly inaugurated members of the 10th Ogun State House of Assembly, with a promise to operate an open-door policy to all regardless of party affiliations, religion or tribe.
The governor appreciated the members for conducting themselves in an orderly manner during their proclamation and inauguration, noting that it indicated that the State is peopled by those who know how to resolve their differences amicably.
“Let me sincerely appreciate your sense of responsibility, and your leadership qualities that have been exhibited by each and every one of you at this time. This is how we like to be defined as a State. A State that upholds the tenets of democracy, a State that knows how to resolve its problems, a State that determines its differences peacefully.
“We must remind ourselves that we are the industrial capital of Nigeria. We are the investor’s destination of choice, we are the education and religious capital in Nigeria and we are a State with many firsts.
Speaking earlier, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Oluomo said the members came on a courtesy visit to appreciate the governor for his support to the House at all times.
He informed the governor of the peaceful conduct of the proclamation and inauguration of the 10th Assembly, assuring him of their resolve to work as a team by cooperating with the executive for peace and the development of the State.
All the 26 members of the Assembly, including the new Deputy Speaker, Hon. Bolanle Ayayi, who is the first woman to occupy that position, were in attendance.
