Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun has asked his appointees with eyes on contesting for positions in the 2023 general election to quit his cabinet on or before Jan. 3, 2022 to pursue their dreams.
The Governor said the directive had become expedient in order to avoid “observed distractions and loss of focus in the discharge of their responsibilities,” according to a statement issued by Chief Press Secretary, Mr Kunle Somorin, on Tuesday in Abeokuta.
Abiodun noted that while it was legitimate to have such ambitions, he would not tolerate any activity that could undermine his administration.
“As an administration, unwaveringly committed to delivering on its electoral promises, any activity that is capable of undermining the implementation of its ‘Building Our Future Together Agenda’ will not be tolerated,” he said.
Abiodun urged those who could not wait till the appropriate time for the 2023 electioneering to take their leave, without constituting a clog in the wheel of the implementation of his administration’s programmes and policies. (NAN)
