Ondo State Governor Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu has announced the appointment of Temitayo Oluwatuyi as the new Secretary to the State Government.
This came some hours after the resignation of Ifedayo Abegunde who until Monday was the SSG.
The governor disclosed this via his verified Twitter handle saying the appointment is with immediate effect.
He wrote’ “Today, I announced the appointment of Hon. Temitayo Oluwatuyi ‘Tukana’ as the Secretary to the State Government to resume immediately following the resignation of Hon. Ifedayo Abegunde.”
Abegunde had addressed his resignation letter to Akeredolu.
The letter titled ‘Letter of Resignation Effective 6th July 2020’ read, “I, Hon. Ifedayo Sunday Abegunde, the Secretary to the State Government of Ondo State hereby tender my letter of resignation.
“I want to thank Mr Governor for giving me the opportunity to serve the Government and people of Ondo State.
“Again, my family and I wish Mr Governor quick recovery.”
The political clime in Ondo has assumed a new tempo with a gale of resignation depleting Akeredolu’s cabinet.
The Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, had earlier dumped his principal and declared for the Peoples Democratic Party.
No fewer than nine aspirants including Ajayi were recently screened by the Yakubu Dogara-led PDP screening committee for the party’s primary slated later for 22nd and 23rd of July, 2020.
