The commissioner in her speech said the ministry can only achieve success when the staff and members cooperate and allow peace and unity to guide their work and activities.

The commissioner who was a former lawmaker in the 6th House of Assembly was among the 14 commissioners that were appointed and sworn in by the state governor, Engr Seyi Makinde on Thursday at the Executive Council Chambers, office of the governor.
Hon Orisadeyi who was apparently excited at her resumption into office charged staff of the ministry to discharge their duty with fear of God, honesty and high sense of responsibility.
She however urged them to pray for peace, progress and the smooth running of the Engr. Seyi Makinde led administration, assuring that this government has come to put smiles on the faces of the people of the state.
Also in her company was her husband, Pastor Orisadeyi and other well wishers who came to pray for her successful resumption and tenure of office of the commissioner.
