Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has said that his administration would soon begin the reconstruction of Ado township roads; many of which have become deplorable as a result of lack of maintenance.
Fayemi made this known during an inspection tour of some projects, including the Adunni Olayinka Civic Centre, New Ado – Iyin road and World Bank funded rehabilitation of Ureje waterworks treatment plant as well as the new water reservoirs and replacement of water pipeline from Ero dam to Ado Ekiti at the weekend.
The governor said the government has concluded plans to make the township roads motorable but that work was delayed by the heavy rainfalls this year.
He said his administration spent the last one year rebuilding the state and attending to projects that were abandoned by his predecessor as well as completing on-going ones.
He added that most of the projects he initiated during his first term that were abandoned by his successor in office would be completed and commissioned next year.
“The first year was basically a year of rebuilding and restoration because there were things that were left and were hardly touched for four years that I left here. So we spent the last one year reviewing the projects, rebuilding them and restoring all that were abandoned and completing projects that were also started by my predecessor but maybe taken halfway because we don’t have a culture of abandonment. If you go to Oja Oba, it is virtually completed. We are also completing other things that were not completed, those we left and those we met, either they were community projects or state-wide projects.
“When I said this would be a year of construction and deliverables, I meant it and by the time we complete this year in October 2020, it would be a year of commissioning in large scale. We didn’t do much of commissioning in the first year in office. The Lagos liaison office is completed now. This Civic centre is about to be completed. All the plug and play facilities are now in place at the Ekiti Parapo pavilion,” he said.
