The new Ekiti governor, Biodun Oyebanji, worn-in on Sunday, has appointed Mrs Habibat Adubiaro, as the Secretary to the State Government and frozen the bank accounts of the state.

Oyebanji, also approved the appointment of Mr Yinka Oyebode, as his Chief Press Secretary (CPS).

Oyebode’s appointment was announced in a statement issued at Ado-Ekiti on Sunday by the Head of Civil Service of Ekiti, Mr Bamidele Agbede.

Oyebode was the CPS to the immediate past former Gov. Mr Kayode Fayemi.

The newly-appointed CPS, Oyebode, announced Adubiaro’s appointment.

Oyebode stated that Gov. Oyebanji also froze all bank accounts belonging to the state government with immediate effect.

Oyebanji, who was sworn in on Sunday, has also assured the people of the state that he would deliver on his campaign promises to position the state for peace and prosperity despite the present challenges.

The inauguration ceremony were the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu; three former governors of the state, Dr Kayode Fayemi, Ayodele Fayose, and Adeniyi Adebayo, who is the current Minister of Trade; former Chief of Defence Staff, Abayomi Olonisakin; and former Chief of Army Staff, Gen Azubuike Ihejirika.

Others included Governors Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Babajide Sanwoolu (Lagos), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Godwin Obaseki (Edo), Abubakar Bagudu (Kebbi) and Simon Lalong (Plateau), Zamfara State former governor, Abdulazeez Yari; and Osun State Deputy Governor, Gboyega Alabi.

Oyebanji said, “As I assume leadership of our dear state before God and this distinguished audience today, it is indeed an emotional and historic moment for me that destiny has now placed upon my shoulders the onerous task of furthering the journey to the actualisation of Ekiti prosperity; which was, and remains, our core mandate.

“My vision is for Ekiti State to be a land of prosperity, opportunities, peace and progress; a land in which transformed people and communities can reap the fruits of their labour in dignity, good health and safety; a land of honour where integrity matters.”

He added that his goal was to build on the progress made by the previous administration by ensuring that all our children can access free and qualitative basic education up to the senior secondary school 3, with curricula that prepare them adequately for further learning or the job market.
