According to him, “the newly created Ministry will benefit from the managerial skills of Oyetola, as he is someone who is able to exercise restraints when needed and he is always guided by sound practical wisdom and discretion.
“Oyetola, my boss is someone I have been working closely with for about eleven years now. I can tell you that President Bola Tinubu has definitely put a round peg in a round hole. Oyetola will deliver more than the President’s expectations of him. My boss that I know is going to surpass his expected target.”
“He did it as the Governor of Osun State. The records are there for anyone to check, he managed the economy of the State such that accountability and transparency became institutionalised in all Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government.
“During his time as governor, he believed in a state that works for all classes of people with adequate physical and social infrastructure to support industry, and where there is abundant economic prosperity for all.
“Oyetola is a patriotic, nationalistic, resourceful, creative and disciplined administrator. He is a workaholic, a team player, a silent achiever, a consummate politician, a paragon of transformation and a unique leader.”
He added that the former governor of Osun State is a seasoned financial expert coupled with his successful track record while he was Governor has all it takes to deliver beyond the expectations of President Bola Tinubu.
He, however, congratulated him on his new appointment and prayed to God to give him a sound mind and good health to perform the task.
