Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has dissolved all Boards and Commissions in the State.

This is contained in a circular made available to the Press in Ado Ekiti, adding that the dissolution is in exclusion of Statutory Commissions spelt out in Section 197 of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended.

The dissolution also happens in order to ensure seamless transition of government and early processing of the terminal benefits of the affected political office holders.

Governor Fayemi also terminated the appointment of Special Advisers who are not Cabinet Members; Technical Advisers; Directors General, Coordinators; and other Heads of Non-Ministerial Offices.

He thereby implored the affected officials to hand over all government property in their possessions to the Accounting Officers or the most senior career officers in their Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

The approval takes effect from 31st August, 2022.
