Aiyedatiwa designates former NASS clerk as deputy governor, elevating the appointment


Ondo State Governor, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has appointed Mr. Olaide Adelami, a former Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly, as the state’s deputy governor.

This decision followed the governor’s dismissal of all commissioners and special advisers earlier on Wednesday.

The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Ebenezer Adeniyan, stated that Adelami’s nomination has been sent to the state House of Assembly for approval, with an official announcement expected later in the day.

Adelami, a retired Deputy Clerk to the National Assembly since April 2018, is from Owo Local Government Area, the same as late Governor Rotimi Akeredolu.

Furthermore, Aiyedatiwa dissolved the State Executive Council, relieving Senior Special Assistants and Special Assistants of their duties. All affected officials are instructed to hand over government properties in their possession.

The governor expressed gratitude for their contributions and services to the state.

Aiyedatiwa assumed office as the substantive governor on December 27, 2023, succeeding the late Governor Akeredolu, who passed away at the age of 67 while receiving treatment for prostate cancer in a German hospital.

Additional details are expected to follow.
