The two new Commissioners who were sworn in on Wednesday have been given portfolios by Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, the Governor of Ondo State.
Prince Jacob Adeboboye Ologbese and Akinwumi Samson Sowore, earlier Wednesday took their oath of office after they were screened and cleared by the Ondo State House of Assembly.
Ologbese was assigned to the Ministry of Regional Integration and Diaspora while Sowore will be overseeing the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.
Governor Akeredolu also reassigned three other Commissioners to various ministries.
The Governor said the redeployment was aimed at improving governance and deploying talents to reinvigorate certain sectors.
Mrs. Bamidele Ademola Olateju, the former Commissioner for Regional Integration and Diaspora, was transferred to the Ministry of Information and Orientation, while. Fatai Olotu Aburumaku, the former Commissioner for Physical and Urban Development, was moved to the Ministry of Water and Sanitation.
Also, the former Commissioner for Water and Sanitation, Mrs. Yetunde Adeyanju was transferred to the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development.
Akeredolu urged the newly appointed and reassigned Commissioners to perform their jobs to the best of their abilities while adhering to his administration’s mantra of “One Administration.”
Meanwhile, Mrs. Yetunde Adeyanju has resigned her appointment. Mrs. Adeyanju who was earlier today redeployed from the Ministry of Water and Sanitation to the Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development tendered her resignation letter shortly after Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu announced a minor reshuffle in the cabinet.
In the letter, Mrs. Adeyanju appreciated Gov Akeredolu for the opportunity to serve the people of Ondo state.

RESIGNATION OF APPOINTMENT
I hereby resign my appointment as a Commissioner in Ondo State with immediate effect.
My decision is predicated on a personal conviction to explore other endeavours outside politics for now.
However, I’m grateful to you for the golden opportunity given to me to contribute to the growth of our dear state, especially with the Kamomi Aketi Rural Water Supply.
You gave me the platform and I’m proud that I used it well for the good of humanity. Kamomi AKETI water scheme remains the joy of thousands of rural dwellers today.
Once again, I thank you for the opportunity to serve.
