To ensure that that the dividends of democracy are delivered to people of Ekiti State, Governor Kayode Fayemi, has said that senior government officials and members of his cabinet would sign performance contract.
Fayemi who charged the state officials to work hard for his administration to be able to deliver on its promises, said Ekiti people must start noticing evidence of good governance.
The governor, who noted that his succession plan will be determined largely by level of dividends of democracy offered by the populace, said the commissioners and special advisers were appointed to drive his 4 Cardinal Agenda.
He made this known while declaring open a three-day retreat organised by the Ekiti government to equip the state senior officials in the state civil service at the Royal Park Hotel, Iloko Ijesa, Osun State.
At the retreat attended by over 100 senior public servants, Fayemi stated that the task of delivering on his promises has become more convoluted and tasking, by the N30,000 minimum wage, which he said his government was ready to pay workers.
He said all the public servants, especially those in charge of revenues generation must brace up for the task of generating more funds to be able to meet this new demand.
“We have to be focused on how to deliver on our promises to the people that is why you will sign to performance agreement at the end of every quarter and if you think what we set for you was too high, then you bow out.
“We have to take restoration of Ekiti values from the level of promise to reality. I know you need resources and there must be plans on how these will be provided and measured the extent to which you have delivered.
“The task ahead is tedious but not insurmountable. Most of the states used to fail because they don’t have plans and have nothing to deliver. There must be something measurable to be put in place and that can be evaluated periodically as a government,” he said.
