The Ondo State Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has revealed that the recent dissolution of the cabinet inherited from the late governor Rotimi Akeredolu, was done in good faith.
Aiyedatiwa spoke at the swearing-in ceremony of the new deputy governor of the state on Thursday.
He said he, “harbours neither ill wind nor animosity towards no one.”
He said, “The decision was borne out of a genuine response to the yearnings and aspirations of the people and the need to rejuvenate and reinvigorate this administration for maximum delivery on our mandate.
“We also needed to maximize unnecessary distractions usually associated with cabinet members and other appointees in an election year like we have in Ondo State.”
The further said, “this is the standard practice in sane climes.
“Government needs to be less encumbered by politicking and pave the way for interested individuals to pursue their aspirations while simultaneously guaranteeing continued enjoyment of good governance to our people in the Sunshine State.
“We have a sacred duty to our people not to sacrifice good governance on the altar of individual, though legitimate, pursuit of political aspirations.”
