The governor, who said that the changes were effected in good faith and in the utmost interest of the state, urged the people to take maximum advantage of the development.

He said that the collective welfare of the people and toeing the path to new frontiers for the actualisation of the administration’s five-point agenda necessited the change.
The governor assured the people of his continued commitment and unwavering dedication to leave the state better than he met it.
