The outgoing governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko on Thursday handed over mantle of leadership to the incoming governor, Rotimi Akeredolu. This happened ahead of the official inauguration that will place today, Friday.
The exchange of baton, which occurred at about 7 p.m. at the Cocoa Conference Hall of the Governor’s office, Alagbaka, saw Mimiko handing over to Akeredolu bound documents relating to the government of Ondo State.
“The state is in good hands with a man like Akeredolu taking over from me. I have no doubt that Akeredolu will serve the state well. I will continue to pray for the state and offer myself for its development when necessary.”
Akeredolu emerged governor of the state on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the governorship which held in November last year.
