Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko on Tuesday sacked all his aides, and is reportedly making plans to re-shuffle his cabinet in preparation for the next governorship election of the state.
According to Sahara Reporters, sacked aides include his special Assistants and senior special Assistants.
The report further states:
The governor had more than twenty aides who were provided official vehicles and monthly imprest, yet some had no offices and collected huge salaries and bonuses.
Governor Mimiko announced their disengagement when he invited the aides to a short meeting at the Babafunke Ajasin Auditorium in Akure, the Ondo State capital. He said the disengagement of the aides was a step towards adjusting his government to better deliver services.
The sacked individuals were reportedly surprised to learn about their dismissal.
