"This cabinet is the engine room of the administration, my Deputy is here, even though I am not going with him for the second term but he is part and parcel of my administration because we are there in the same political party but it was permutations that left him out of the system.
“Certainly, I don’t have any qualms with him, he is my brother even before we came here, he has been a friend.
"Nobody should go with the impression that we are not together, it is just the issue of political permutations and so on and so forth.
“Let us find it to forgive each other because there is no way we would not have offended each other.
"I have forgiven you, you too should find it in your hearts to forgive my shortcomings, they were done in the best interest of the state," the governor said.
