Fayose re-appoints six sacked commissioners

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has recalled six out of the remaining 10 sacked commissioners.

The governor had about six weeks ago dissolved the State Executive Council, including 16 commissioners.

But on July 9, Fayose directed six of the commissioners to return to their duty post with immediate effect.

Those recalled then were Commissioner for Environment, Bisi Kolawole; Mrs Funmi Ogun (works), Ayodele Michael (Commerce and Industry), Kehinde Odebunmi (Agriculture), Toyin Ojo (Finance) and Dr Olurotimi Ojo (Health).

However, on Friday, the governor in another statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, approved the reappointment of fresh six of the sacked commissioners.

They are Kola Kolade (Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice), Lanre Ogunsuyi (Information, Youths and Sports), Taye Otitoju (Lands), Gbenga Olajide (Budget and Planning), Jide Egunjobi (Education, Science and Technology) and Mrs Olayinka Ogundayomi (Women Affairs).

The two newly appointed commissioners are Ayo Alabi (Local Govt and Chieftaincy Affairs) and Chief Tunde Ogunleye (Water Resources).
