“I know you have people who can work in this place and I am also aware that the best among the best crop of civil servants in the state are in this office”.
The SSG equally commended the Permanent Secretary, Comrade Samuel Dietake, stating that he is humble and dedicated to his job.

Mr. Bayoko prayed God to protect him and give him the wisdom to pilot the affairs of the new office and urged the staff and management to give the new SSG their support to enable him succeed.
Highlight of the ceremony was the signing of the handover note by the SSG and the outgone functioning SSG.
