“Today is the day our God ordained to stand his authority as the owner and giver of power,” he also said.

“I will remain God’s driven, divinely inspired, I will govern with the fear of God. Our governorship is an affirmation that we are for the people, by the people,” he promised.

On behalf of the Osun people, we appreciate you and adore your love for justice and equity. Challenge, a call to duty, a fresh demand for more dividends of democracy”.

He continued, “I commit myself to more expanded delivery of good governance, in me, you will find a true pro-people governor. I seek the support of all Osun residents and citizens, in respective of party affiliations. This is our state and we must join hands to develop it.

“My appreciation goes to my family. My wives, Titi and Ngozi, and children. To all Imole in Nigeria and abroad. Thank you for standing by me. I want to thank my brother and sister.

“My people of Osun State, the good job continues, we wrap up the implementation of our five points agenda. We shall focus on grassroots development.

You shall truthfully feel and enjoy the dividend of democracy.”
