Ondo Gov. dissolves cabinet 4weeks after Akeredolu’s death

The Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has dissolved the State Executive Council with immediate effect, barely four weeks after assuming office, following demise of the former governor, Rotimi Akeredolu.

All members of the cabinet are to immediately hand over to the permanent secretaries or the most senior administrative officers in their respective offices.

The dissolution was made public on Wednesday through a statement released by his spokesperson, Ebenezer Adeniyan, and made available to newsmen.

According to the statement, all Senior Special Assistants (SSAs) and Special Assistants (SAs) are relieved of their duties, with immediate effect.

“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 noted.

Aiyedatiwa became governor following the death of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu at a German hospital after a protracted battle with prostate cancer.

Aiyedatiwa, who is expected to constitute another cabinet very soon, was expected long before now to have embarked on the move considering the circumstances surrounding his emergence as governor.

Before the dissolution, one commissioner and some special assistants had resigned shortly after Aiyedatiwa was sworn in.
