The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has reassured the people of the state that he will complete and deliver all outstanding projects before leaving office on October 16.
The governor cited, in particular, the multi-billion Naira ultra modern Oja-Oba market in Ado Ekiti, nearing completion.
The governor spoke on Tuesday during the 2018 annual Udiroko festival at the palace of Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Aladesanmi Adejugbe.
He was received by hundreds of indigenes of Ado Ekiti, who kept hailing him as he spoke inside the amphitheatre in Ewi’s palace.
Fayose said he had demonstrated his love for the people of Ado Ekiti by constructing a 1.2km flyover, urban renewal projects, new market, 750-seater civic centre, an amphitheatre inside the Ewi’s palace and many roads in the city.
He promised to keep in touch with the people even after leaving office while thanking them for their support.
“Anyone who comes to this palace of the Ewi will remember me as the governor who built this amphitheatre. I told you that I would perform and you have seen my performance.
“I will ensure that all those who were displaced when we demolished the old market are first considered in sharing the shops in the new ultra-modern market which we will complete in a few days.”
“My good works for you will bring me good fortunes. Even if my deputy was announced as the winner, I have an expiry date as governor of the state. It is not the man who governs that matters but what he has done for the people. History will judge me well on my performance as I have delivered on my mandate. I will ensure to work assiduously for the state till my last day in office.”
Oba Adejugbe and Babalola hailed Fayose for transforming Ado and the state in general.
“Fayose has demonstrated consistency. He promised to turn around Ado and he has indeed turned around the town. Ado is now a befitting state capital. He said he was coming to deliver and he has delivered,” the monarch said.
Babalola added, “We had been working here in the Ewi’s palace before Governor Fayose came, but what he did here within three years is unparalleled.”
