The Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, dissolved the state executive council ahead of his inauguration for his second term in office.
Governor Obaseki on Wednesday announced the dissolution at a valedictory executive council session at Government Gouse in Benin City, expressed appreciation to the outgoing council members for their selfless service to the state.
Godwin Obaseki said,
“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 are 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.”
Godwin Obaseki urged former members of his cabinet to continue to work and support his administration, adding, “You are all part of this administration and architects of the new design for the growth and development of the state.”
