Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, on Monday dismissed one of his aides, Augustine Pelemo, a Senior Assistant on Political Matters.

The details surrounding the dismissal of Pelemo were yet to be revealed as at the time of filing this report, but a source who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity said there was an issue before the governor took the drastic measure.

Donald Ojogo, the State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, released the statement to the media on Monday.

“This directive is with immediate effect; and it underscores the need to instill sanity and nip in the bud divisive acts and tendencies inimical to the existing cordiality and cohesion in the administration led by the governor.

“While wishing him well in his future endeavours, Mr Governor further directs Pelemo to hand over every government property in his possession to the deputy chief of staff without further delay,” Ojogo said.
