Following his appointment s minister of Interior, former Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has officially taken over the affairs of the Ministry of Interior. The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Barrister Georgina Ehuriah, on Monday handed over affairs of the Ministry to Aregbesola.
In his words, the Honorable Minister said it was a pleasure to have formally resume work and meet all the nice people in the ministry. He also said he understood the implication of his designation as a Minister and that he’s committed to the service which is the key factor.
‘It gives me great pleasure to formally resume work and meet all the nice people in this ministry and its agencies’.
“I have the full understanding of the eponymous implication of my designation as a Minister. To be minister (as a verb) actually means to serve while, minister (as a noun) is a servant, therefore the key factor here is service which I am committed to do. I serve at the pleasure of the President and we in this ministry are servants of the Nigerian people.
Where we need reforms, we will brace up to them. Where we need personnel and more hands, we will make the case and get the strength we need. Where we need resources we will not relent in obtaining them for the purpose of improving our service to the people.”
I have therefore set forth now.
