Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki on Monday shunned visitors as he settled in to succeed former labour leader Adams Oshiomhole.
Garbed in blue suit with a red tie, Obaseki walked in alongside his deputy, who dressed in khaki, a reminder of the Oshiomhole days.
Government House workers were shocked to see the governor in the office as early 7:45am, resuming before some staff.
Before entering the office, Obaseki inspected a guard of honour mounted by the police.
He spent a few minutes to address permanent secretaries before checking the handover notes with his deputy.
Obaseki was earlier taken round the Government House by the Head of Service.
Many people who thronged the Government House to continue the victory celebration were disappointed as ‘no loitering’ directive was issued.
At 10am, he swore in the Secretary to the State Government.
He also appointed theChief of Staff and the interim chief press secretary.
