The Speaker after announcing the appointment of the seven Commissioners said rather than coming to the House on Thursday with their documents and necessary certificates, the appointees should come with copies of reports of their achievements so far as well as their future plans to move Oyo State forward inline with the vision and mission of the present administration led by Engr Seyi Makinde.

” The seven returning Commissioners have been screened before by the Oyo State House of Assembly. We have their relevant documents and certificates with us. However, I will employ them to come and give us progress reports of their activities and other plans they have to move Oyo State forward. We are looking forward to seeing them in the House. ”
