Olaniyan, who noted that obedience had always been his virtue, said he was comfortable with every decision made by the state government regarding his office relocation.
According to him: “I have had the opportunity to work with this government for 28 years. Go and ask about me from those who know me. I have never been served a query for disobedience. So why should this be an exception?”
The deputy governor, who noted that he still remains committed to his office, noted that nothing would deter him from carrying out his official duties as the deputy governor of the state.
Olaniyan said he did not share the same thought with those who believed that he is being witch-hunted by the sitting governor because of his  defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
