Though it’s not customary to mark 200 days in office, in this instance I boldly congratulate his Excellency on his dexterity in handling not just the immediate and low hanging fruits of our dear state, but also his political sagacity…. No one seems left behind, and if only for that reason our people can claim ownership of his projects, guard it against vandalism and abandonment.
There is hardly a day that goes by that Ekiti roads are not getting attention, be it in the state capital or the hinterland. The roads in the hinterland are strategic as these roads lead in and out of the capital, so Abuja/Lagos is more readily accessible for our people.
The statutory duty of any government includes paying salaries as at when due, the Oyebanji administration has not let the ball down, the state’s workforce are happy, and as the saying goes, a happy worker is more productive.
I can’t but reflect on the news of promises made and fulfilled, though the tricycle gifts ain’t really a form of liberation. More still needs to be done in actually lifting our people out of poverty. If this government targets the NG-CARE to those really in need and not girlfriends, immediate family members of coordinators, then another feather would have been added to BAO’s cap.
A lot still needs doing, particularly in the areas of uncompleted projects, God works wonders, nothing is impossible. Our cargo airport will function, our CCTV apparatus will function, nothing will be left uncompleted in the course of time. Even Ikogosi has developed it’s lifeline outside government patronage, without necessarily shaking the table, fountain hotel needs a revisit. The potential isn’t full optimized, same with the Ekiti Abuja hotel. The rooms need upgrading. Even if it were just two floors, that renovation will attract investors and if be spur the current management into real hotelier duties. The location is prime, the prices of the rooms can go up if services are matched.
As I toast his Excellency on his 200 days in office, I also use this opportunity to wish my dearest egbon (Mrs Fajuyi) quickest recovery, we all love you ma.
