My Appointments Will Be Based On Merit – Ogun Gov



By Jonathan Nda-Isaiah

Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, has  said  his choice of those to be appointed into his cabinet will be determined by merit, insisting that qualified professionals were imperative to the execution of his plans for Ogun people.

Abiodun disclosed this to  State House correspondents  on Tuesday after a meeting with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa.

According to him, his experience in the private sector would guide him in appointing competent persons to work with him in Ogun State.

He said, “You know my background is in the private sector and in the private sector we believe in what is called merit before anything else.

“So, everything we are going to be doing in Ogun henceforth would be based on merit.  Our cabinet will reflect people who deserve to be in office.  They will show competence.

He said the composition of his transmission team, which “comprised the best brains in Ogun from the private sector”, was an indication to the direction his administration is headed to.

“If you look at what we have done so far, the choice of my CPS; I’m sure you know who my CPS is, Kunle Somorin, one of the best minds in the media industry in Ogun; my Chief of Staff is also a very brilliant Ogun man; my SSG is a very successful entrepreneur from Ogun as well.

“So, this is how we are going to be defined to achieve our potentials, which we have earmarked and called our pillars.

“We must ensure that things are gotten right, which we call our enablers.
