Ibikunle Amosun, the Ogun State Governor, has stated that he is ready to hand over to the Governor-elect, Dapo Abiodun, on May 29.

The outgoing governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Barr. Taiwo Adeoluwa, dropped the hint on Monday during the inauguration of a 26 member Transition Committee ahead of the inauguration of a new government on the hand-over day.

The two committees comprising 15 members from the team of the governor-elect, Dapo Abiodun, and 11 members from the current governor was officially inaugurated at Oke Mosan, the Governor’s office in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital .

The two female deputy governors, Yetunde Onanuga and Noimot Salako-Oyedele, as well as the incoming deputy were selected as the co-chairmen of the committee.

Amosun, in his statement, noted that a transition committee had been formed since last year December in readiness of a successful outing.

He added that the first draft of the handover note had been ready since February but was only repackaged till date.

“We will be in position to hand over a comprehensive handover note to you on May 29, 2019.

“By God’s grace, 28th of May, 2019, we can sit down like this and hand over to you.

“We have not been sleeping so as to have a smooth running of the transition.

“Government house, Oke-Igbein, is ready. If you want to move in tomorrow. Both the Presidential lodge and government house are ready.

As soon as you tell us when you need the keys to the government house and that of the Presidential Lodge, we will make them available,” Amosun stated.

With the new development, Amosun seems to have swallowed his pride and succumbed to Prince Dapo Abiodun’s victory.

Recall prior to the election, the governor tried all possible means to field his anointed successor, Abiodun Akinlade, but all hopes were dashed after his successor lost to the business mogul turned politician
