The ejection follows a directive from the office of the Chief of Staff to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola.

Daily Post reports that the directive has continued to generate a lot of tension among the former aides, who have continued to reside at their official apartments despite the dissolution of the cabinet after the completion of Aregbesola’s first term in office in November 26, 2014.

The governor is already in the 26th month of his second term in office without constituting a cabinet, and strangely, former Commissioners and array of Special Advisers still operate their offices and maintain official apartments at the government’s quarters.

A reliable source at the government’s circle told Daily Post that most of the former aides of the governor still perform executive role under the guise of ‘”consultancy.”
