Speaking in Afao Ekiti during his tour of The Gifted Academy built by the Ayo Fayose-led government, Dr Fayemi stated that though he may not agree with his predecessor on the rationale behind the establishment of some projects, abandoning those projects would amount to wasting the resources of Ekiti State.
The governor who re-echoed his administration’s perception of governance in “the continuum frame” recalled that he completed virtually all projects left behind by the Segun Oni-led government in 2010 because they were executed with public funds.
His words: “When I came as governor, I completed to the best of my ability virtually all the projects left behind by the Oni administration. It was my government that completed some of the roads started by Oni. It was my government that completed Ipoti-Odo Owa- Ila Orangun road, Otun-Osun-Iloro road, Isan – Ilemeso road, we completed the House of Assembly complex. It has always been our intention to see governance in a continuum frame.
“We don’t make discreet compartmentalization of governance but where we are today, it is inevitable, we have to take a comprehensive look at all projects whether we have the resources to work on them is another matter.
“The important thing is these have been funded by Ekiti money not by a particular governor who embarked on the project. I may disagree with many of the things put in place by my predecessor but I don’t think it is in my place to abandon them because I am abandoning the resources of the state.”Related
