The Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has sacked three commissioners in his cabinet. No reason was given for their sack. The commissioners relieved of their duties are Solagbade Amodeni (physical planning and urban development), Taofiq Abdusalam (works and infrastructures) and Ismaila Olurimisi (culture).
Segun Ajiboye, chief press secretary to the governor, said Akeredolu informed the affected officials at the end of the state executive council meeting on Monday. He said the sacked commissioners were directed to handover all government’s property in their possession to the permanent secretaries of their respective ministries.
“The Governor thanks the three of them for service to the good people of Ondo State and wish them well in their future endeavours. The governor has therefore nominated the following for the position of commissioners Yetunde Adeyanju, Titilayo Adeyemi, Temitayo Oluwatuyi, Fatai Olotu and Akindotun Olubunmi Owanikin. The names of the nominees will be forwarded to the state house of assembly for confirmation,” Ajiboye said in a statement.
The governor also named Babatunde Kolawole and Oyebo Aladetan as special advisers. Kolawole, a former lawmaker, represented Akoko south federal constituency in the house of reps.
