ALO ABIOLA, Ado Ekiti
Ekiti State governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has urged Nigerians and particularly the people of his state to hope for brighter future and not be deterred by the current challenges they are contending with.
In his New Year message to the people in Ado-Ekiti, the governor said, “The insufficiency of today will turn out to the abundance of tomorrow if we all improve on our efforts and dedication.”
According to a press statement issued by his chief press secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in Ado Ekiti on Sunday, the governor while thanking the people of the state for the rare opportunity given him to lead them twice expressed satisfaction that he had lived up to the confidence reposed in him by the people of the state.
He added that the chance afforded him the opportunity to correct some erroneous impression some had about him, and the deliberate mischief peddled against his person towards the twilight of his first term in office.
Reeling out his achievements in office, the governor said he had been able to transform the face of the state from a rustic settlement to modern urban centres through the provision of infrastructure, socio economic policies, and other measures.
“During my first term in office, we embarked on the dualisation of major roads in Ado-Ekiti. We are however, happy that we have extended the dualisation of roads to almost all our local government headquarters. The icing on the cake is the 1.3 kilometers flyover that links Fajuyi Park to Ojumose axis in Ado-Ekiti.
“Just like we did during our first term, we also embarked on the construction of public buildings to make governance and public service more conducive. We built the Adunni Olayinka House, a new Governor’s Office, new High Court Complex, new Ojaba Market, new Speaker’s Lodge among others.
“Our efforts in education and social sector yielded positive results as we improved significantly in public examinations with our state coming first back to back in NECO examinations,” he said.
Fayose, said despite the huge debts left for him to inherit by the Kayode Fayemi administration, he was able to overcome some challenges and achieve results due to the support of the people and the prudent management of available resources.
