Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola, the newly appointed Minister of Marine and Blue Economy, expressed his sense of challenge and responsibility upon being appointed as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Speaking on the sidelines of a reception organized by the Osun State chapter of the APC and other stakeholders in Abuja on Monday night, Oyetola acknowledged the weight of his appointment and the associated responsibilities.
Oyetola, who is also motivated by the challenge of heading a newly established ministry, assured that he would excel in fulfilling the mandate given to him by the presidency. He extended his gratitude to President Bola Tinubu for deeming him suitable for a ministerial role and appreciated the solidarity displayed by the event’s organizers and attendees. He emphasized the importance of collaboration and support from all stakeholders in achieving success in his new ministry.
During the event, Sen. Iyiola Omisore, the immediate past National Secretary of the APC, described Oyetola’s appointment as a fitting choice and expressed confidence in his ability to deliver on his new responsibilities.
Former Interim National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, echoed these sentiments, asserting that Oyetola’s appointment was well-deserved and an honor for the people of Osun. Akande commended the appointment for reinstating hope in the Nigerian project and the administration led by Tinubu.
Oyetola had previously outlined his vision for a thriving blue economy sector that emphasizes sustainability, innovation, and economic growth. Speaking during his inaugural news conference at the Ministry of Transportation, he highlighted the country’s abundant marine resources and the need to harness them effectively. He also pledged to promote inter-agency cooperation and coordination within the maritime sector.
The event was attended by several dignitaries, including Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, traditional rulers, members of the Osun House of Assembly, and diplomats, among others.
