They are some of the things we’ve been discussing, they are promises I have made to you, you will suddenly see changes very soon”, he said.
Abiodun, while commending the Public Servants in the State for their efforts towards the successful implementation of the ‘ISEYA’ mantra of his administration in the first term, said the success recorded was a result of the cordial relationship between the Public Servants and Political office holders.
