The Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has revealed the main reason he sent a list of seven new commissioner-nominees to the State House of Assembly.
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Yinka Oyebode, said the action was taken in order to strengthen the cabinet and bring in new ideas to develop the state. He added that the decision was taken to make the state greater.
Oyebode noted that governor Fayemi took the decision to send the new commission-nominees to the state assembly by working with other progressives to bring the dividend of democracy to the people of the state.
The governor’s aide, however, refused to reveal the commissioners that would be let go by the governor. Oyebode said:
“Let us wait and see how the screening will end before talking about who will be affected.
“The essence of the cabinet reshuffle is to strengthen the government for better performance and that we shall achieve in the end”.
