The sack was made known via a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, who announced the cabinet reshuffle by the governor.

The statement said the governor directed the Special Adviser, Arts and Culture to take over as the Acting Commissioner for Ministry of Tourism and. Culture.

The Special Adviser on Transportation will take over as Acting Commissioner for Transportation, while the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance will take over as the Acting Commissioner for Finance, pending the appointment of new Commissioners in the respective ministries.

Ambode thanked the former Commissioners for their service to the State and wished them well in their future endeavours.

The statement gave no reason for the decision.
