Ondo governor Aiyedatiwa sacks SSG, commissioners, other appointees |

The governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has sacked all members of the state executive council.

The political appointees affected by the sack include the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Chief of Staff, Commissioners, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, and Special Assistants.
The sacking was disclosed in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ebenezer Adeniyan, on Wednesday.
The dissolution of the State Executive Council was coming about a month after the death of the late ex-Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, who appointed the affected political aides.

Aiyedatiwa expressed gratitude to all the political appointees for their contributions to the development of the state.
The governor also directed that all the affected appointees should hand overto the most senior administrative officers in their Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs).
“All members of the Cabinet are to immediately hand over to the Permanent Secretaries or the most senior administrative officers in their respective offices.

“Also, 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.”

Meanwhile, the fate of the political appointees has been hanging in the balance since the demise of Akeredolu, whose burial will be coming up in February, following the polarisation of the cabinet due to the feud between Aiyedatiwa and his late boss.
Also, some of the sacked cabinet members had indicated interest in contesting the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) with Aiyedatiwa.
