“While I recognise the right of people to freedom of expression, I also have the right to respond to the fake news being circulated on social media. Having listened to the CVs of the two appointees, you will discover that they got this job clearly on merit. My promise to Ekiti people is that I am going to look for the best anywhere to help me run Ekiti and that is what we are going to do.
“We are not going to be distracted as long as we are doing what is right in the interest of our people. But, I need to put it on record that neither the former Governor nor his wife, nor the former deputy Governor has put any pressure on me to appoint anybody. But if I have to go back to his former  cabinet and appoint relevant  people that can assist me , I will go and pick them.” the governor  said
He  promised to always  get very competent Ekiti indigenes wherever they are to man strategic positions in his administration.
Oyebanji said he had promised the people of the state that members of his cabinet would be the best set of individuals that would assist him in managing the affairs of Ekiti in a manner that would bring about the fulfilment of his electoral promises to the people of the State.
