The new Permanent Secretaries are Timothy Olatunji; Samuel Adeogun; Mrs Moriamo Oloko and Wasiu Kuye.
Addressing them at an event held at the Executive Chambers, Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, on Friday, the governor noted that the new Permanent Secretaries were appointed from a pool of erudite members of different cadres in the state public service.
He said, “This event is yet another symbolic representation of our administration’s commitment towards a continued strengthening and reform of the public service. It is believed that this continuous process will also place the public service in good stead so that it will perform its duty as the engine room of government.”
Abiodun also implored the new appointees to make probity their watchword and be prudent in the management of both human and material resources under their care.
Biden Shades Trump
U.S President Joe Biden slammed news outlets for using “lies told for profit and power” to incite hatred, while making pointed jokes about Fox .
He also subtly shaded former President, Donald Trump, referring to his ongoing court cases.
Speaking at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday night, Biden referenced “truth buried by lies,” an apparent reference to false conspiracy theories that his 2020 election victory was the result of massive voter fraud.
Lies told for profit and power. Lies of conspiracy and malice repeated over and over again designed to generate a cycle of anger and hate and even violence,” Biden said.
That cycle, Biden added, has emboldened local jurisdictions to ban books, and “the rule of law and our rights and freedoms to be stripped away.”
