Governor-elect of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has pledged to give Ado Ekiti, the state capital, a face-lift when he assumes office in less than two months’ time. He also promised to complete the multi-million naira ongoing Ado Ekiti palace pavilion project within his first year in office.
Speaking during the celebration of the Idiroko festival at the palace of the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe weekend, Fayose said he would continue with the developmental stride going on in the state capital, since according to him, Ado Ekiti was strategically located as the state capital.
He lauded Oba Adejugbe for what he described as his sterling qualities and commended the people of Ado Ekiti for their massive support during the June 21 governorship election in which he defeated the incumbent, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
According to him, “There is no doubt that Ado Ekiti will continue to be relevant in the state because of its numerical strength and the fact that it is the capital of our state. My performance will surpass what I was able to achieve during my first term in office”.
The governor-elect also commended the outgoing administration for its contribution to the development of the state, saying every government that had ruled the state since its creation had contributed their quota to its development.
