Peace In Ondo: Mimiko Hands Over to Akeredolu

Gov. Olusegun Mimiko and Rotimi Akeredolu
The outgoing governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, Thursday evening officially presented his hand‎-over notes to the incoming Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN.

Akeredolu and his deputy, Hon. Ajayi Agboola will officially be sworn-in at the Akure township Stadium, Friday.

The handling‎ ceremony held at the Cocoa Conference Hall and was attended by both outgoing aides of Mimiko and leaders of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
In his speech, Akeredolu said “Today is not about speech making, speech will be made tomorrow. We are here for a short ceremony, the governor and other members of the team who are responsible for this seamless transition have done well.

“I Remember on one occasion that the governor told me that the swearing-in ceremony is a state affair and that the state can not afford to fail. “I must admit your efforts in ensuring that we have a seamless transition. The team led by Jide Olujuyigbe has been very cooperative.

“I have said it once, and I will repeat, you have done your best and am sure you have satisfied yourself. The moment that satisfaction comes, you go to your bed knowing that you have handed over to another person.

“I know the task is not something you can take for granted, the governor and I have had discussion, I know it is not going to be rosy, you have done your bit, history no doubt will judge you. “You have done your own, it is left for me to do my best. All we want to do is to serve this state, let us serve this state”.

In his response, Mimiko said he has no doubt that he was handling over the state to a safe hand.

His words, “‎It is only one that God favors that will live to see a day like this and be the beneficiary of a day like this. “Aketi and I have always been soul mates, even in Ife. I have no doubt in my heart that the state will be in good hands with you as governor of the state.

“I pray that this spirit of cooperation will continue in our state so that government will witness seamless transition. “I pray to God to help you so as to sustain the peace in this state. It is one of the major achievements of this government in eight years”.
