Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko on Sunday said his next cabinet would consist of a team of dynamic people who would share his vision for a greater Ondo State.
A statement by the state government in Akure, said Mimiko spoke with journalists in Washington DC.
Mimiko said in the statement, “Those that will make the next cabinet will be people who are capable of learning new things and breaking new grounds in our determined efforts at taking Ondo State to greater heights.”
Mimiko, the statement added, was in the United States to make a presentation on the success of his health programme – the Abiye Safe Motherhood – to world health experts at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies on Thursday.
The governor said efforts would also be made to re-orientate the Civil Service in the state for optimum performance aimed at driving his government’s policies during his second term in office.
He said, “It was traditional and expected that somewhere soon, the cabinet had to be dissolved to give room for a new government that would be sworn-in on February 24.
“The type of people that will be in the cabinet will be people who share my vision, people who are capable of learning new things and breaking new grounds.
“I will leverage on my experience in the last four years, about my interactions, about people, to get the work done.”
The governor added, “I will bring in people who have eyes on developing Ondo State and bequeathing an enduring legacy for the next generation of Ondo people.
“Our Civil Service must be vibrant and capable of delivering on our programmes.
“The new Head of Service in Ondo State has been mandated to ensure a more proactive and vibrant Civil Service where every Ministry, Agency and Departments of government must live up to its responsibilities.
“There is the need for a lot of improvement in the service. We have to shift from celebrating success to the celebration of outcome.
“I can assure you that by the time we come up with our Cabinet, you will know the kind of people who will drive our vision, people who are dynamic; who are daring and rearing to go.”
