The governor, who announced the dissolution at a valedictory executive council session at the Government House in Benin City, expressed appreciation to the outgoing council members for their selfless service to the state.

“You have shown that you are a good leader. I appeal to you to continue with the good works. God has put you as the governor to lead Edo to greater heights and we all will continue to support you.”


Outgoing Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq., commended the governor for his leadership style, adding that the governor’s leadership style prompted the cabinet members to be efficient and effective in service delivery.
On her part, the outgoing Commissioner for Social Development and Gender Issues, Mrs. Maria Edeko, expressed appreciation to the governor for giving them the opportunity to serve in his cabinet.
