Ekiti Special Adviser allays fear of house demolition.
Residents on the dual carriage way along the new Iyin Road currently
under construction have been told not to panic as government would not
demolish any legal structure in the axis while construction lasts.
The Special Adviser on Works, Infrastructure and Transports, Hon.
Sunday Adunmo gave the assurance while inspecting the road project in
Adunmo, who said he was pleased with the level of work so far done on
the road project, tasked the contractor to be relentless as the
governor was eager to deliver his electioneering promises without
leaving out any one.
“Sincerely, l must commend the contractor for the milestone reached so
far but he must keep up with the pace. The governor wants to deliver
on all his electioneering promises to Ekiti people”, he pleaded.
He said culverts and drainages would be constructed in appropriate
places on the road to ensure easy passage of water for the road to
stand a test of time.
Hon. Adunmo assured residents whose properties are located within the
approved radius of the construction area not to dismantle their
facilities as government would not tamper with them.
The Special Adviser, who said workers at the project site would be
dominated by Ekiti indigenes, noted that the era when foreigners
dominate our labour force had gone for good.
“I can assure you that according to our term, the contractor will
recruit his staff from Ekiti. Ekiti indigenes are going to handle the
major works on this project. Ekiti money will be used to develop
Ekiti and not otherwise”, he assured.
He explained that all contractual agreements on the project would be
strictly complied with to ensure quality and durability.
