Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has sworn in 10 commissioners and President of the Customary Court of Appeal, Justice Moshood Abass.

He charged them to hit the ground running and remain on the path of engendering justice and sustainable development in the state.

The governor, while speaking at the twin swearing-in ceremonies, yesterday, at the Executive Council Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan, urged the commissioners to play their part in the realisation of his vision for the good people of the state.

He equally tasked them to synergise efforts for the continued growth and an integrated approach to governance, with a view to attaining economic prosperity in the state.

A statement by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, indicated that the governor promised to facilitate a marked improvement in infrastructure across the 33 local councils of the state, noting that the state government would soon engage council chairmen on how to make that possible.

Besides, Makinde used the occasion to assure residents that there would be significant improvement in infrastructural facilities across the state.

He added that the government had been pushing investments to the local councils because it knows the importance of grassroots development.
