Abiodun, however, used the occasion to appreciate President Muhammadu Buhari for his words of encouragement and support during his recent state visit and commissioning of landmark projects 

According to him, the accolades showered by the president for a job well done by his administration was not just for him, but for his cabinet and the people of the state.
