The new Permanent Secretary to the State House, Mr Olusesan Adebiyi, has assumed duty with a pledge to commit to the success of the President Bola Tinubu administration.
This is contained in a statement by Mr Abiodun Oladunjoye, the Director of Press, State House on Monday in Abuja.
Adebiyi, who previously held the position of Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Health, thanked his predecessor, Mr Tijjani Umar.
He acknowledged Umar’s dedicated service to the nation and congratulated him on his successful retirement on Aug. 10.
”I sincerely pledge my commitment to my fatherland. I will put forth my best effort for the success of the administration.
“I pledge my faithfulness, hard work, honesty, and sincerity of purpose in ensuring that every assignment given to me is carried out to the letter,” Adebiyi said.
The Permanent Secretary urged State House staff to work as a cohesive team, with renewed vigour and dedication to succeed.
In his remarks, Umar said it was an honour to have served two Presidents, Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu, during his three-year tenure from April 5, 2020 to Aug. 10.
”Driving round the State House today gives me great pleasure because I have seen how much we have impacted the community.
”When you look to the left, right and centre, there’s something somewhere that people will continue to use and benefit from what we initiated, completed and delivered,” he said.
Umar hinted at a memoir, chronicling his career in public service, slated for publication soon.
Born in Kabba, Kogi, Adebiyi hails from Ekiti State.
