The Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Thursday dissolved the States Executive Council.
Akeredolu, who announced the dissolution of the cabinet at the valedictory executive council meeting held in Akure, commended the council members for their support and service to the people of the state in the last four years.
The governor will be sworn in for another term of four years on February 23.
Akeredolu said the council has approved the adoption of an indigenous anthem which projects the tradition and culture of the Yoruba tribe.
He added that the anthem would henceforth be sung immediately after the National Anthem at official and public functions in the state.
Akeredolu was re-elected as Ondo State governor on October 10 last year after he defeated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Eyitayo Jegede, in the state’s governorship election.
