Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, on Wednesday, showed three of his commissioners the exit door in an unexpected cabinet reshuffle.

Secretary to the State Government, Tunji Bello, in a statement announced that Folorunsho Folarin-Coker; Mustapha Akinkunmi and Ekundayo Mobereola, commissioners of Tourism, Finance and Transport respectively, have been sacked.

The statement 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 becomes the 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.

No reason was given by governor Ambode for relieving the former commissioners of their duties, even as the governor thanked them for their service to the State, wishing them well in their future endeavours.
