    I’m beginning to like this Oyo state governor for his leadership, I believe he has seen the performance of his old cabinet and he knows where he wants to take Oyo state to next. We have to understand that when you come into a new position such as the Governor of a State, it takes some time to get a grasp of how things gets done & I’m sure he has filtered his surroundings and knows who is who right now.
