"Please note that your appointment comes with added responsibilities beyond that of a Permanent Secretary.

"We expect that you will use your office to motivate the workers to key into the re-building mission of the state government," he said.

The governor urged the family of the new HOS to show understanding as his new responsibility would demand more time out of home.

Adeyemi in his remarks thanked the governor and the state government for considering him worthy of the appointment.

He pledged to do his best to consolidate on the achievements of his predecessors and strengthen the civil service for increased productivity.
