“They were directed to hand over all government’s property in their possession to the Permanent Secretaries of their respective ministries,” the statement said.
The governor, however, pledged that the people would continue to be at the centre of the policies of his administration while he continued to deliver the dividends of good governance to the people of the state.
The move is coming barely 24 hours after some youths on Monday morning blocked the entrance to the Ondo State governor’s office in a bid to register their protest.
The youths who were from Ilaje Local Government Area of the state alleged that the governor has been diverting the funds meant to develop their area.
The youths mounted a human barricade at two gates of the governor’s office at Alagbaka GRA of the state capital.
They prevented workers of the governor’s office from gaining access into the complex.
