Kwara State Gov Announces Minor Reshuffle In Cabinet

AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, the governor of Kwara State, has announced a minor reshuffle in the State Executive Council.

News About Nigeria reports that this is contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, in Ilorin on Friday.

Those affected include Commissioner for Social Development, Mrs. Justina Afolashade, who has been redeployed to the Ministry of Women Affairs.

Also, Mrs. Bosede Buraimoh, who was hitherto in charge of the Ministry of Women Affairs, was moved to the Ministry of Social Development.

Similarly, the Commissioner for Youth Development, Mrs. Nafisat Buge, was moved to the Ministry of Environment, while Mr. Shehu Usman, who was hitherto in charge of the ministry, moved to the Ministry of Youth Development.

In the statement signed by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, the cabinet reshuffle takes immediate effect.

Recall that on May 1st, the governor swore in Alabi Afeez Abolore as a new Commissioner for Solid Minerals, with a charge on him to be patriotic, hardworking, and prudent in his new office, working against unscrupulous elements that engage in illegal mining in the state.

With the cabinet reshuffle, Governor Abdulrazaq moved Abdul Quawiy Olododo to the Ministry of Works and Transport as the Commissioner, a responsibility he had earlier shared in an acting capacity with his Solid Minerals Portfolio.

Alabi, a native of Iponrin in the Ilorin East local government, had earlier served as the state commissioner for tertiary education until May 29, 2023.

Mamman Saba Jibril, Chief of Staff, however, tasked the Commissioner to be loyal, steadfast, and committed as they take up the new responsibilities, adding that their choices were rewards for service to the community and support for the party.
