“I promise that my administration would not cheat anyone, it will be an all-inclusive government where everybody will be happy and peace will reign supremely in the state.”

The Speaker said: “You and your team have the utmost task of strengthening the Executive-Legislative relationship; it is most important considering the differences in the ideology of our political parties. We must also allow the rule of law to guide our actions, behaviour and activities during this period.

“On a personal note, I want to beseech you to surround yourself with men of valour, value and honour, who will give the best advice that will advance the lives of our people. Your activities and that of your team must at all times be in tandem with the principle of separation of powers and mutual respect for each arm of government.

“Mr Governor, I am happy that you have at some point served in this arm as a distinguished senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This enormous task of acting right and staying on that path lies with the legislative arm and we as the accredited representatives of our people have sworn to continue on this path.”
