He said his people are spread across towns, villages and farmsteads of the state and are contributing their quotas to the economic development of the state.

Oyigocho added that the number has since increased as more Idomas are relocating to do business due to abundance fertile farmlands and prevailing peace in the state.

He lauded the people oriented programmes and policies of the Ekiti state government.

The community from the middle belt of Nigeria, posited that Dr Kayode Fayemi-led administration within just six months in office has brought smiles to the face of all residents including non natives in the state.

While pledging their support for the state government, Oyigocho who is also Ochidoma, appeal to governor Fayemi to give recognition to the group by appointing at least one of them in his government.
