Ahead of his inauguration for a second term in office, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, on Wednesday, dissolved the state executive council.
The governor, who announced the dissolution at a valedictory executive council session, commended the outgoing council members for their selfless service to the state.
“Since I became governor, I didn’t sack any commissioner, but rather they sacked me by resigning from my cabinet. What is important in government is the core values of truth, justice and fairness.
“When elected to serve the people, let us truly serve the people, as we will give account to God. I can’t claim success alone, what I did was to create the opportunity for you to serve.”
He urged the outgoing former cabinet members to continue to work and support his administration.
“You are all part of this administration and architects of the new design for the growth and development of the state.”
In his speech, the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, commended the governor for his leadership style, adding that all former members of the cabinet learnt from his political ideology.
“You have shown that you are a good leader. I appeal to you to continue with the good works. God has put you as the governor to lead Edo to a greater height and we all will continue to support you.” he said.
