Mr. Ekundayo Mobereola was a former Commissioner for Transportation in Lagos state before Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s administration but was fired alongside two other commissioners namely; Folorunsho Folarin-Coker former Tourism Commissioner and Dr. Mustapha Akinkunmi former Finance Commissioner, precisely one year after the Governor constituted his Executive Council on October 19, 2015.
Ekundayo who had served as the transportation commissioner for the state since former governor Bola Tinubu’s administration to whom he was also a close associate, was immediately replaced by the Special Adviser on Transporation Prince Anofiu as the Acting Commissioner and then permanently replaced in early 2018 by Mr. Oladipo Akinwale Lawanson who is the incumbent Commissioner for Transporation in Lagos state.
Sources revealed that the commissioners were fired because some of them had approached Ambode to observe due process in governance. It was also gathered that there had been rumblings of disapproval by some commissioners about Ambode’s administrative style, including the fact that some commissioners were allegedly being favoured against others. The personality clashes among the members of the state cabinet forced Amode to reshuffle his cabinet, which Ekundayo fell victim to having been characterized as disrespectful to Ambode.
Ekundayo seems to be on the sidelines in Lagos state’s current government since his removal from office after having served the state over the years.
