I want to use the opportunity of this hour to express my profound appreciation to you all for the avalanche of overwhelming messages of felicitations, encouragements and prayers that instantaneously greeted the announcement of my name as the Chairman of the Board of Ogun State Television (OGTV).

Those massages came like a thunderous rain on a shining asphalt, on my phones via SMS, WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, and calls. They were so rapid and ceaseless that I had to ask myself on Thursday evening, if I was the only one whose appointment was announced.

I agreed totally with those who said I should thank God for the unending goodwill messages I continue to receive. In fact, I was further encouraged and challenged by those messages, as most of the people not only said the appointment was “putting a round peg in a round hole”, but confidently prophesied their trust that I will deliver on the mandate of His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR.

I want to thank our Leader, the Governor, on this appointment, which I have taken as a challenge to go and improve on the fortunes of the establishment. I want to thank friends, fans, leaders, associates, colleagues, relatives, organisations, associations and well wishers all over the world who have sent me congratulatory messages, directly or indirectly since last Thursday. I thank, in advance, those who will still send.

The sole goes to Almighty God, Allah Subuaana Watahala, who has said that nothing happens without His permission. It is same God that I am sure will see me and my team through, since I worship no one but Him.

I congratulate my fellow Board Members (actually nine others apart form the General Manager) and pray that our tenure shall be visible successful.
