“The affected officials have been directed to ensure the handover of all government properties in their possession”.

The governor extended his gratitude to the affected officials for their dedicated services and contributions to the development of the State.

Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who formerly served as the deputy governor of Ondo State, was inaugurated as the substantive governor of the South-West state on December 27, 2023, following the unfortunate passing of Governor Akeredolu.

It is worth noting that the former deputy governor withstood an impeachment attempt by some of Akeredolu’s allies in the Ondo State House of Assembly during the period when the ex-governor was indisposed.
