A statement issued by the Governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed on Wednesday, Governor Adeleke described the new logo as a symbol of new rebirth for the state.

“I am elated to sign this new Logo into law as a signal of rebirth of our dear State. The new logo is significant because it rhymes and meaningfully represents our historic anthem, our values and tradition.

“The new logo is also an educational resource material for our younger generation as it contains symbols of our landmarks, strengths, resources and history. The logo is also a tool to market the state at home and abroad.

“It is my honour and privilege to introduce the new logo as the symbol of our state. This announcement will herald a new life of prosperity, abundance and sustainability for our people and admirers”, the governor was quoted.
