The affected Commissioners are perceived loyalists of his predecessor and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Recall that both the governor and his predecessor have been at loggerhead over the control of the State House of Assembly, with insinuations riff that Obaseki may be denied a second ticket.
The sack came at the weekly State Executive Council (SEC) meeting which is normally held every Wednesday.
At least, eight Commissioners were affected by this latest sacking spree.
One of the affected Commissioners, said that more appointees are expected to be relieved of their duty over their perceived loyalty to the former governor, Oshiomhole.
