Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.

The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, on Monday dissolved the State Executive Council, with a directive that the appointees hand over to the most senior civil servants in their respective ministries, department and agencies.

Mr. Amosun announced the dissolution at an extended executive council meeting held at the council chambers, Oke-Mosan. He thanked the appointees for their support, co-operation and devotion to the accomplishment of the “mission to rebuild Ogun State”.

The dissolution is coming four days to the expiration of the governor’s first term in office and affects the secretary to the state government, chief of staff, commissioners, special advisers, consultants, senior special assistants, special assistants, and personal assistants.

The governor commended members of the council for being part of the team that has laid the foundation for a new Ogun state and added that posterity will be kind to them for their hard work.

Mr. Amosun prayed God to bless the outgoing members of the Ogun State government and grant them success in their future endeavours.

During the final meeting of the extended council, members took turn to relate their experiences in the last four years and thanked God and the governor for the opportunity given to them to serve.

Mr. Amosun, who was re-elected on April 11, 2015 will be sworn-in for a second term on May 29, 2015.
