Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi has reduced the number of ministries in the state from 23 to 13, days after Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai took a similar step.

Ajimobi made the disclosure on Tuesday, June 9, 2015, during the inauguration of the state’s 8th Assembly.

The governor said further that the decision was taken to reduce the cost of governance considerably, and to restructure the Mministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) for optimum performance.

“Our desire to embark on the foregoing, among others, is borne out of our ardent desire to make life more abundant for the good people of Oyo State. Likewise, for the state to attain the desired global status that she deserves,” Ajimobi said.

The governor also praised the people of the state for defying “all known distractions to break the mythical or contrived yoke of 39 years of “no governor ever secured a second term at Agodi Government House””.

Ajimobi was sworn in for a second term on May 29, 2015, and is the first governor in the state to secure a re-election.
