The 18 caretaker chairmen were sacked on Monday.
The sack is despite the extension of the council chairmen’s tenure by the state assembly.
A statement by the state government said new council chairmen will be sworn-in on Tuesday.
Mr. Mimiko, who was re-elected for a second term in office late last year, did not conduct council elections in his first term as governor.
