Fayemi orders aides to prepare hand-over notes

17 September 2014, 07:24

Ado-Ekiti - Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State on Monday directed all commissioners and other political appointees to start preparing their handing-over notes.

Fayemi gave the order at the inaugural meeting of the 19-member transition committee, which he named on Sunday.

Fayemi had on Sunday released the names of the committee, comprising members from the government and the governor-elect, Ayodele Fayose.

The Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr Ganiyu Owolabi, stood inaugurated the committee on behalf of the governor.

He explained that the transition committee was constituted to ensure a smooth transition between the outgoing and incoming administrations.

Besides, he said the committee would facilitate information about what was needed to be known concerning facts and figures in respect to the activities of the outgoing government.

This, he said, would put a stop to falsehood or misrepresentation of facts.

Owolabi, who doubles as Chairman of the committee, declared that actions and decisions would continue to be taken by the outgoing government till its last day in office.

"There cannot be a vacuum in governance and it must be known that the present government has a mandate of four years during which it is expected to provide leadership without fail," he said.

According to the SSG, there are 193 ministries, parastatals and agencies in the state currently, saying members from the Fayose side would be free to ask questions or seek clarification in areas not clear to them.

Responding, the head of Fayose's nominees, Dipo Anisulowo, who was also named as Co-chairman of the committee, commended the outgoing governor for setting up the mixed transition committee.

Anisulowo, who was represented by another member of the committee, Owoseni Ajayi, said the committee would serve the dual purpose of making facts known without coloration.

He, however, advised the outgoing government not to create problems for the in-coming one.
