AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, governor of Kwara state, has dissolved his cabinet with effect from Dec 31, 2020.
This is contained in a statement issued by Rafiu Ajakaye, the Chief Press Secretary to the governor late night Sunday.
According to the statement, the Secretary to the State Government Prof. Mamman Sabah Jubril retains his seat.
It said the Governor also directed the former cabinet members to hand over to the most senior officers in their respective ministries.
The statement quoted His Excellency, AbdulRazaq, thanking and commending the Honourable cabinet members for their contributions to the development of the state while also wishing them the best in their future endeavours.
The cabinet members were sworn in on December 14, 2019, comprising at least 56.25% female, in what was remarkably the most gender friendly cabinet on the African continent. The cabinet also had the country’s youngest commissioner.
