I Won’t Abandon Projects Inherited From Fayose , Says Fayemi

Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has assured the people of the state that his government will not abandon projects inherited from previous administrations in the state.

The governor stated that though he may not agree with his predecessor on the rationale behind the establishment of some projects, abandoning the projects would amount to wasting the resources of Ekiti State.

Fayemi said this in Afao Ekiti on Wednesday during his tour of The Gifted Academy built by the immediate pastor Governor of the state,  Ayodele Fayose-led government.

The governor recalled that he completed virtually all projects left behind by the Segun Oni-led government in 2010 because they were executed with public funds.

He explained that the tour was aimed at having a comprehensive assessment of all state government financed projects.

“When I came as governor, I completed to the best of my ability virtually all the projects left behind by the Oni administration. It was my government that completed some of the roads started by Oni. It was my government that completed Ipoti-Odo Owa- Ila Orangun road, Otun-Osun-Iloro road, Isan – Ilemeso road, we completed the House of Assembly complex. It has always been our intention to see governance in a continuum frame.

“We don’t make discreet compartmentalization of governance but where we are today, it is inevitable, we have to take a comprehensive look at all projects whether we have the resources to work on them is another matter.”

“The important thing is these have been funded by Ekiti money not by a particular governor who embarked on the project. I may disagree with many of the things put in place by my predecessor but I don’t think it is in my place to abandon them because I am abandoning the resources of the State”, he said.
