Kayode FayemiHe may have lost last Saturday’s governorship election that could have helped him secure a second term in office but outgoing governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, is still discharging his functions till his tenure expires on October 16, 2014, as he has promised to create new council areas before that time.

The governor made this known while receiving the report of the Local Government Creation Committee, led by Justice Akin Ajakaye (rtd) in his office yesterday.

It would be recalled that the seven-member committee was inaugurated by the governor on January 15, this year, following the agitation from various communities across the state for autonomy and new council areas.

The committee, which was initially given three months to conclude its assignment and submit its report, asked for extension which was granted by the government.

Presenting the committee’s report to the governor, Justice Ajakaye noted that they were given five terms of reference which he said helped it to carry out its assignment.

He expressed optimism that the committee’s report and recommendations would assist the government to arrive at decisions that would be of benefit to agitating communities.

According to the committee chairman, 72 memoranda from 15 of the 16 council areas were received with the exception of Famure council.

Gov. Fayemi, while receiving the report, gave the assurance that the government would immediately put in place a White Paper committee to study the report.
