Fayose sacks cabinet


In one fell swoop, the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has directed the immediate dissolution of the State Executive Council.

This was disclosed in a terse statement signed and made available to journalists in Ado Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.

The statement said, “All the former Commissioners are directed to hand over to the Permanent Secretaries of their respective ministries.

“The governor thanked the former commissioners for their service to the State and wished them well in their future endeavours.”

The statement did not disclose reasons for the sacking of the commissioners. [Punch]
