Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Friday sacked all his commissioners and special advisers.
Oshiomhole, who addressed a valedictory session of the State Executive Council in Benin, thanked all its members for assisting in the delivery of his programmes in his first term as well as ensuring his re-election.
The governor made the surprise announcement ahead of his swearing in for a second term on Monday.
He also told the commissioners and special advisers that their appointments would subsist till midnight on Sunday, when his first term would officially end.
He said, “I want to use this opportunity to say how much I appreciate your efforts.
“Four years down the road, working together, arguing, debating, even sometimes disagreeing, we have provided a collective leadership to the people of Edo State.”
Responding on behalf of his colleagues, the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Osagie Obayuwana, thanked Oshiomhole for giving them the opportunity to serve the state.
“The experience of working with the governor had been a school of leadership for us, which was defined by the highest level of congeniality,” Obayuwana said.
