Fayose reconstructs roads himself, drives an excavator

– Governor Ayo Fayose promised to fix roads in Ekiti in spite of the financial crisis in the country

– The Ekiti governor was at the flag-off of the repair of Efon-Aramoko-Igede-Ado Road

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti drove an excavator as he flagged-off the rehabilitation of the Efon-Aramoko-Igede-Ado Road in the state.

In a statement by Mr Idowu Adelusi who is the chief press secretary to the governor, he said the governor decided to fix the road after it was abandoned by the federal government.

He said: “Though this is a federal road, we are going to fix it because we won’t join those who are not giving people value for their votes to further punish our people. We run a responsible and responsive government and people should tell those at the federal level to stop giving excuses and to stop complaining.

“We are calling on federal authorities to be alive to their responsibilities and stop complaining and give us value for our votes, as we will change this change that has brought inconvenience to our people. Despite the paucity of funds, we won’t be deterred and discouraged. We will ensure that the road is made motorable before Christmas period and I urge the people to cooperate with the contractors.”

He assured that before he leaves office, the Aramoko stretch of the road will be covered in asphalt.

Oba Olu Adeyemi who is the Alara of Aramoko-Ekiti said he had written to the federal government to complain about the state of the road.

He said: “I am deeply touched by the decision of the governor to start the rehabilitation of this road. The bad portions are menace to us here. That the governor has the view of rehabilitating a federal road, bearing in mind the problems associated with getting reimbursed for it, is very commendable. The governor has left an indelible mark in our hearts.”
