In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Yinka Oyebode, Oyebanji said he was confident Bamidele would discharge his duties as Senate leader effectively and bring additional value to the legislative and oversight functions of the upper legislative chamber, as well as the good governance agenda of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu administration.

According to the governor, Senator Bamidele is very well prepared for the national assignment, given his sound education, intellectual disposition, amiable personality and political sagacity as well as the public service and legislative experiences he had gathered over the years as a three-time commissioner in Lagos State, member of the House of Representatives and two – time member of the upper legislative house.
