Ondo governor, Mimiko, dissolves cabinet

 Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko, has dissolved his cabinet as he begins a second term

Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State on Monday announced the dissolution of the state executive council, a day after being sworn-in for a fresh four year term.

Non statutory boards as well as parastatals, also stand dissolved, the governor said.

Mr. Mimiko thanked the outgoing cabinet members and political office holders for their selfless service and dedication to the state, and assured them of his deep appreciation of their efforts in the past four years.

“I have always said that the good work we have been able to achieve has been as a result of the synergy and team effort put in by all of us at the cabinet, as well as in other positions of responsibilities we have found ourselves since we came on board,” Mr. Mimiko said.

The Ondo State Governor was sworn-in for a second term on Sunday.

A statement from the governor’s office said officials affected include commissioners, chairmen and members of boards and parastatals; Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants and others who have served in positions other than statutory commissions.

The dissolution, Mr. Mimiko said, excludes all appointees whose tenures are not tied to the expiration of his government’s first term.

“Through our collective efforts, rich debates, engaging arguments, agreements sometimes disagreements; we have provided responsible and dedicated leadership to the people,” the statement said. “Diligence has been our watchword and for this I am very grateful to all of you.”

Mr. Mimiko prayed for God to reward the affected office holders in ways more commensurate than their contributions.
