The executive Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has dissolved the State Executive Council, with immediate effect.
The governor also relieved all Senior Special Assistants and Special Assistants of their duties.
The governor’s spokesman, Ebenezer Adeniyan, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday, January 24, 2024.
“All members of the Cabinet (who were appointed by late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu) are to immediately hand over to the Permanent Secretaries or the most senior administrative officers in their respective offices.
All the affected officials are directed to hand over all government properties in their possession.
The Governor thanks the affected officials for their services and contributions to the development of the State,” the statement reads.
It would be recalled that Aiyedatiwa, formerly Ondo deputy governor, was sworn in as the substantive governor of the South-West state on December 27, 2023, following the d£ath of Akeredolu.
