The swearing in, which took place at the Cocoa Conference Hall in the governor’s office in Akure, the state capital, was conducted at 4pm, on Wednesday, December 28, the same day Akeredolu passed on.

As the deputy governor, was being sworn in, clapping and cheering was heard in the background, as the audience were rejoicing over the swearing in of the deputy governor.
