Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has threatened to sack any member of the state executive council found displaying incompetence and engaging in corruption.
Fayemi disclosed this while swearing in 14 new set of commissioners and special advisers in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
The swearing-in came after the names of the commissioners-designate were approved by the state’s House of Assembly.
The governor said the task of rebuilding Ekiti, that would be of gains to all and sundry, should be paramount to the appointees and not personal aggrandisement.
He said the state needs committed and visionary people, who are ready to sacrifice to make Ekiti great.
He added that the inauguration marked the commencement of a full-fledged state executive council since he assumed office.
He said his administration will be receptive to constructive criticism from members, while no one would be victimised for exercising such rights.
The new commissioners are Adio Afolayan (Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs), Dr. Moji Yaya Kolade (Health and Human Services), Chief Moji Fafure (Women Affairs), Emmanuel Foluso Daramola (Education, Science and Technology), Mr. Folorunso Olabode (Agriculture and Rural Development), Bamidele Faparusi (Infrastructure and Public Utilities) and Mr. Gbenga Agbeyo (Environment).
Others are Olusoga Davies (Trade and Investment), Mr. Sola Adebayo (Works and Transport), Mr. Michael Awopetu (Youths and Sports), Mr. Muyiwa Olumilua (Information and Orientation), Mr. Femi Ajayi (Budget and Planning), Ayodele Jinadu (Regions Development and Special Duties) and Mr. Febisola Adewale (Lands and Housing).
Responding on behalf of the commissioners, Yaya-Kolade promised they would justify the confidence reposed in them by being diligent and resourceful.
