Ekiti Government to tar FUOYE Campus roads

Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has assured authorities of the Federal University, Oye -Ekiti that the campus’ internal roads would soon be tarred by the state government as part of his administration’s commitment to the repositioning the institution for improved service delivery.

Dr Fayemi who disclosed this at the University’s convocation ceremony in Oye Ekiti, on Saturday, said he had approved the rehabilitation of the campus’ internal roads to ensure that the students study in conducive and serene academic environment.

He assured the University of the commitment of the state government to continue to partner the university in the drive to make Ekiti the knowledge zone of Nigeria.

Governor Fayemi said: “As a government, we are not unmindful of your challenges and efforts are in place to assuage some of them. Our government fully appreciates the contribution of this institution to the socio-economic development of the state, that is why we have offered to tar the intra-campus roads to further give it the needed aesthetic it deserves as a university. The process of contracting is ongoing and I am sure contractor would soon be on site.

“You can count on the support of Ekiti State Government to intervene whenever the need arises. You can be assured of our commitment to continue partnering with you in our quest to make Ekiti the special knowledge zone of Nigeria.

Speaking further, the Governor who noted that the University was yet to adopt its new name, urged President Mohammadu Buhari, who is the visitor to the university, to ensure that the renaming of the institution after a former Governor of the old western state, the late General Adeyinka Adebayo was given effect.

“I hereby call the attention of the Visitor, through his representative, that the university is yet to legally assume it’s new name since the Visitor honoured us by renaming the university in honour of our elder statesman, the late General Adeyinka Adebayo.”

While charging the graduating students on the need to internalize the knowledge they acquired in the course of their studies, Dr Fayemi commended the Vice Chancellor and his management team for their hard work which has resulted in massive transformation of the university to an enviable height.

Governor Fayemi felicitated with the Catholic Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Bishop Felix Ajakaiye on his conferment with the award of Doctor of Public Administration of the university, describing it as a well deserved honour. He also hailed Imam Abubakar Abdullahi who was also conferred with a honorary doctorate in recognition of his humanitarian intervention that saved the lives of over 200 persons when suspected bandits attacked communities in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area, Plateau State

My vision is driven by the conviction that Governments primarily have responsibilities to perform and must be held to account on improved conditions that meet basic standards of living; employment generation and livelihoods sustainability; whilst balancing socio-cultural peculiarities of the various constituencies in the new world order.
