The Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on Sunday, dissolved his cabinet.
Abdulrazaq directed the former cabinet members who were sworn in on December 14, 2019, to hand over to the most senior officers in their respective ministries.
This was contained in a statement titled ‘Dissolution of Executive Cabinet’, dated December 31, 2020, signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Rafiu Ajakaye and confirmed by the state Commissioner for Communication, Mrs Afolabi Oshatimehin Adenike Harriet, on Sunday.
According to the statement, the Secretary to the State government, Professor Mamman Saba Jibril, was only allowed to retain his seat.
The statement read in part, ” I write on behalf of His Excellency, the executive governor of Kwara state, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, to thank you most profoundly for your worthy and remarkable contributions to the success story of this administration thus far.
