Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has declared that his administration would only appoint 14 commissioners, on account of prevailing financial difficulties.

The declaration is coming eight months after Fayose was sworn in as governor.

Announcing the decision on Friday while featuring on a monthly radio and television programme, “Meet Your Governor”, he said he has not appointed commissioners since he assumed office because of paucity of funds.

Fayose added that the immediate past administration of Kayode Fayemi appointed more than enough commissioners as well as 102 special advisers; but with  present economic difficulties, the state that practise would have to stop.

The governor promised that the list of the commissioners would be presented to the House of Assembly within 48 hours.
