Olusegun Mimiko, outgoing Ondo state governor, has handed over power to Rotimi Akeredolu, incoming governor.
Mimiko passed the baton to Akeredolu on Thursday evening.
This is coming less than 24 hours before the inauguration of Akeredolu as Ondo state governor.
Before the exercise, Mimiko made two appointments, which are – Idowu Ologunagba as rector for Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, and Sunday Ogunduyile as vice-chancellor of the University Science and Technology, Okitipupa.
Mimiko has spent eight years as the governor of the state.
In November, Akeredolu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), defeated Eyitayo Jegede, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the state governorship election.
He polled 244, 842 votes while Jegede polled 150, 380 votes.
