Oyo state governor Seyi Makinde has announced the dissolution of the State Executive Council.
The Governor also terminated the appointments of political office holders urging them to handover government properties in their custody.
The dissolution was contained in a memo dated May 23 , 2023 and signed by the Chief of Staff to the Governor and Chairman, Transition and Inauguration Committee, Otunba Segun Ogunwuyi.
The dissolution which takes immediate effect, however, exempted all political officeholders in statutory commissions.
“All political officeholders are required to officially hand over and submit all government properties in their possession to the most senior civil servant in their respective Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
“Please note that political officeholders in statutory commissions are excluded from this directive.
“His Excellency appreciates your tremendous contributions to the development of our dear state and wishes you success in your future endeavours. I thank you.”
