Speaking at the handing over ceremony, held at the Cocoa Conference Hall of the Governor’s Office in Akure, Mimiko said that he was leaving the state better than he met it.

Describing himself as an embodiment of God’s grace, the outgoing Governor expressed deep confidence in Akeredolu and charged him to do all within his ability to develop the state.

“The state is in good hands with a man like Akeredolu taking over from me. I have no doubt that Akeredolu will serve the state well.

“I will continue to pray for the state and offer myself for the development when necessary, Mimiko said.

In his remark, Akeredolu said Mimiko has done his best for the state and enjoined him to be at peace, having served the state meritoriously.

He also urged former commissioners and other public office holders in the state to support his government, as their services would be regularly needed to develop the state.
