Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Wema Bank Plc, Mr Segun Oloketuyi, has described the administration of Governor Ayo Fayose as one which connects well with the masses, saying the step has endeared the administration to the people.
Speaking during a visit to Governor Fayose at the Governor’s Office, Ado-Ekiti at the weekend, Oloketuyi also said that the government in Ekiti under Fayose was a listening one, thereby being able to know what the people need.
He said the bank was interested in discussing areas of collaboration with the state. “Among the areas we are looking forward to collaborating with your administration are agriculture which is a major sector in the state and small and medium-sized enterprises, SMEs.
“Agriculture is important because with the global economic recession, we have to diversify our source of income and agriculture is a key sector.
“We are also going to help promote small and medium scale enterprises because that would help our industrial growth,” he said.
Oloketuyi noted that the bank would also help the state government to improve its activities, which would positively affect the lives of the people.
He commended the governor for embarking on people-oriented projects, saying such projects would go a long way in improving the socio-economic situation of the state.
Governor Fayose, in his remarks, lauded Wema Bank for her intervention programmes particularly in the South-West geo-political zone, noting that the efforts of the bank at providing a conducive atmosphere for a better society were being felt.
He expressed the readiness of his government to partner with the bank to have a common ground to work together for the benefit of the people of the state.
Fayose reiterated the commitment of his government to the welfare of the people, saying he would continue to ensure workers’ salaries were paid regularly, while developmental projects would not be made to suffer.
