EKITI STATE Governor, Mr
Ayodele Fayose has flagged
off the further extension of the
dualisation of Ado-Ikere Road
in Ikere-Ekiti with a promise to
extend the project into the town’s
roundabout before leaving office.
The governor, who stated this
in Ikere-Ekiti, said the extension
being undertaken now would be
completed before the year runs
The governor’s Chief Press
Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in a
statement yesterday said, Fayose
also supervised the payment of
compensation to people whose
houses and structures were
affected by the project.
The governor noted that it was
unfortunate that where he left the
project over 10 years ago during
his first tenure was where he met
“I was the one who embarked
on the dualisation of major roads
linking the state capital, Ado-
Ekiti with other towns and that
included the Ado-Ikere Road.
Before I came back and for about
10 years, no administration
improved on the project.
“We are embarking on projects
like this because it is better to use
state money for the development
of the state and her people. My
mission is to make life easy for the
people of the state and that is why
we have to pay compensation
before demolishing affected
structures.” he said.
Fayose gave the assurance that
the project would be completed
in a matter of months and that his
administration would extend the
road deep inside the town.
The landlords who were
given compensation praised the
governor for his determination
to provide social amenities for
the people despite the prevailing
economic challenges.
