He said the approval was part of the decisions taken at the 35th virtual meeting of the State Executive Council on Wednesday.
Mr Omole said the appointment was made after clearance from the Ministry of Justice, adding that it was consistent with the provisions of the Chiefs Law (2012) Cap C5 Law of Ekiti State.
He said that consequently, Falore is the new Olufaki of Ifaki-Ekiti, in Ido-osi Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, while Aniyi is the new Obaleo of Erinmope-Ekiti in Moba LGA of the state.
He said the appointment has been authorised to be published as a legal notice in the state gazette.
The commissioner said the council also approved the rehabilitation of township roads in the state, adding that the project would be carried out by the State Public Works Corporation through direct labour.
“The corporation is expected to expedite works on the roads ahead of the anticipated high traffic during the upcoming festive period,” he said.
