Makinde sacks political appointees, dissolves cabinet

The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, on Tuesday, terminated the appointments of all political officeholders and dissolved the state Executive Council.

This is contained in a letter signed by the Chairman, Transition and Inauguration Committee, Mr. Segun Ogunwuyi, who doubles as the Chief of Staff to the Governor.

According to the letter issued in Ibadan, Makinde directed all the affected appointees to hand over government properties in their custody to the most senior civil servants in their respective Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

The governor, however, excluded political office-holders in statutory commissions from the directive.

Makinde appreciated the contributions of the affected appointees to the development of the state, wishing them success in their future endeavours.
