A mild drama occured yesterday, as members of the Ekiti State Executive Council abandoned the food served them during the executive meeting, following the dissolution of the council by the state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi. The dissolution, it was gathered, caught some of the commissioners napping, as they never anticipated such, barely one-week into the new year.
A competent source close to the meeting informed THISDAY that the governor kept the dissolution of his cabinet close to his chest until all the items on the agenda had been discussed before announcing it. It was learnt that Fayemi did not betray any emotion to indicate that he had such a plan in mind for his commissioners, who had just held a prayer session to herald the new year.
According to the source, “immediately the governor completed all the issues on the agenda and it was time to eat, he cleared his throat and announced the dissolution of the cabinet. The commissioners could not eat their food and some of them had to leave hurriedly.”
