Reflections on the Fayemi Administration at 3, By Hakeem Jamiu


The Governor of Ekiti Lisp and Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ forum, ancient Minister, pupil, activist and politician, Dr. Kayode Fayemi popularly called JKF is three years in the saddle this October. Here is  his 2d time as Governor of the tell having first  superintended over the affairs of the tell between October  2010 and 2014 which is now being called JKF 1 and his 2d coming as JKF 2. Elegant as he had an eight point agenda long-established after the Millennium Model Objectives in some unspecified time in the future of his first tenure, he has a 5 point agenda in his 2d coming that are Governance, Files Economy, Social Funding, Agriculture and Rural Model and Infrastructure and Industrial Model. In his first term, thru his eight point agenda, he touched all 132 (now 139) communities in Ekiti Lisp and now, he has also touched the entire communities one intention or the opposite thru his 5 point agenda.

The mantra, “Reclaiming the land, restoring our values” became once the signature tune of JKF 2 and his marketing campaign slogan whereas searching for blueprint of job for the 2d time in 2018. Having spent 3 years in the saddle, it’s evidently sure that the slogan  is neither a mere election  sloganeering nor polemical sally. The milestones performed in the last three years respect confirmed that JKF has certainly reclaimed the land and restored Ekiti values and the work is soundless ongoing. Not too prolonged previously, Ekiti came 2d in the nation for budget transparency. Ekiti Lisp also today won awards of most efficient non-public secondary college in Nigeria, most efficient public secondary college, most efficient SUBEB nursery and main college and basically the most efficient teacher in Nigeria. Ekiti came first in Worldwide Arts and Craft Expo 2020 and came 2d National Competition of Arts and Culture (NAFEST) 2020.  All these are testimonies  of factual governance.

The principle executive show he issued on assumption of  blueprint of job in 2018 became once the abolition of all kinds of education taxes levied on pupils by the outdated administration and he pronounced free and compulsory education for all pupils in Ekiti tell from main college to Junior Secondary Faculty. Teachers were recruited besides to civil servants. JKF has been  paying workers  salary promptly and paid section of the arrears owed by the last administration. He also increased fee of  gratuity from N10m monthly to N100m.

JKF restored electrical energy to Ikogosi, Ipolo-Iloro and Erijiyan communities  that  were in darkness for 4 years. He resuscitated the moribund Gossy water firm, Ikogosi Warm Spring Accommodations, Ire burnt bricks and  Fountain Hotels. He performed the abandoned Oja Oba market, many buildings on the tell secretariat, Oba Adejugbe clinic and the tell  Pavillon. Here is exclusively to mention about a which shows that Fayemi does no longer play politics of bitterness and does no longer imagine projects would possibly well perhaps maybe furthermore honest soundless be abandoned on legend of of political celebration differences! Here is what led to the radical “Ekiti  Transition Legislation” which he introduced to the condo of Assembly and became once handed into legislation in 2019. It forbids any unusual executive from leaving in the support of projects by its  predecessor. He has also performed the big and extremely in vogue civic centre which he started in some unspecified time in the future of his first tenure. He has constructed and commissioned  the extremely in vogue blueprint of job of the Ekiti Lisp Water Company whereas many cities with out pipe borne water in the last 30 years were connected. He has rehabilitated  the Ero dam to give transportable water to 10 Local governments. Egbe, Itapaji and Ureje dams respect also been rehabilitated. Erijiyan water present plan has been performed whereas water present became once also restored to  Ipole Iloro. Many unusual areas in Ado Ekiti were provided with pipe borne water. There became once electrification of  many farm settlements .

Many model companions that left the tell underneath the last administration  respect returned and are supporting in the condo of infrastructure.

Fayemi in three years respect touched all communities in Ekiti Lisp thru construction of roads, provision of pipe borne water, renovation of main and secondary colleges, renovation of celebrated and comprehensive health centres, general hospitals  besides to  Ekiti Lisp Teaching Correctly being facility the build the within roads were rehabilitated, fee of WAEC and NECO price for college students and masses empowerment schemes underneath the Social Funding programme. There would possibly be monthly sustenance money transfer for 15,000 Ekiti elders and monthly food enhance for the aged across the tell called “Ounje arugbo”. Four unusual model  faculties were constructed and named after Ekiti icons, additional  secondary colleges were established attributable to overpopulation of students,  3 unusual model colleges respect again been licensed. Additionally it’s far qualified of reveal that college enrolment shot up in  Ekiti  and this necessitated the establishment of these model faculties and unusual secondary colleges.

Fayemi embarked on a  large avenue reconstruction and thus,  Ekiti has basically the most efficient network of tell roads in the Southwest and that’s why Abuja sure  autos today invaded and destroyed our roads. It’d furthermore honest soundless also be mentioned that federal roads in the Lisp respect collapsed! The ongoing  airport mission,  the knowledge zone and the unswerving city mission are all to originate up Ekiti economically and receive it technologically in accordance with global most efficient practices.  The creation of 19 additional Local Council Model Areas (LCDAs) by the Fayemi administration is to bring executive and model closer to the grassroots. The tell roads constructed by Fayemi  are;  the Ilupeju-Ire-Igbemo- Ijan avenue, Oye-Isan- Ikun avenue, Aramoko- Erijiyan avenue, Agbado-Ode-Isinbode Dual carriageway, Ibuji-Igbaraodo-Ilawe- Ado Ekiti avenue. The  unusual dual carriage Ado-Iyin avenue will likely be commissioned this December.

Rural Assess and Agricultural Advertising and marketing and marketing Project (RAMP), a world monetary institution mission would possibly well perhaps be intervening in some roads. On safety, Ekiti has her personal aesthetic half of this general command nonetheless the JKF administration has put in blueprint,  a factual safety structure combining of the regular safety companies, Amotekun and native hunters. The unswerving city mission would possibly well perhaps be ongoing as CCTV  cameras are put in at strategic locations in the Lisp capital.

The Condo of Assembly the build I presently support  became once totally   renovated and to give a befitting atmosphere. The home has   collaborated successfully with the Governor in passing into legislation payments which would be agreeable to the folk  especially protection of females and the girl child. The enactment of the 2019 Ekiti Lisp Gender basically based mostly mostly (prohibition) Legislation ( Revision of 2011 GBV Legislation), the naming and shaming of sexual offenders would possibly well perhaps be original in Ekiti whereas the 2020 Sexual Violence Against Teens Compulsory Therapy  & Motion Care Legislation became once enacted in 2020. The home also handed  the invoice for the establishment of the Ekiti Security Network Agency and Amotekun Corps,  2020. Altogether, the condo has handed a entire of 68 regulations.  The Assembly has been ready to attain its main characteristic optimally.

In agriculture, executive has attracted many big investors admire Stallion rice mill, Dangote rice mill, FMS farm, JMK farms, Promasidor and so forth. The Ikun diary farm has been resuscitated and is producing 80,000 liters of milk per 30 days.  Early life in Industrial Agricultural Model YCAD a programme started in some unspecified time in the future of JKF 1 has been sustained and over 1,000 young farmers were empowered and they’re doing successfully. They were assisted with all they considerable to prevail admire land, implements, seedlings and loans.  Loans were also given to rice farmers besides to cocoa and cashew seedlings as enhance for farmers. There would possibly be ongoing creation of Agric villages in the 16 LGAs in Ekiti Lisp. The Condo of Assembly today handed into legislation,  a non-public member invoice subsidized by this creator titled, “The Ekiti Meals Security Invoice by making provision for active participation of political blueprint of job holders and profession officers in Agriculture in another case  called “ Comprise a Farm Project” and other associated issues, 2021.

The Ekiti aged resort is sort of entire,  transit dwelling and capacity acquisition centre for females who are  victims of domestic violence has been constructed and there are inmates. The wife of the Governor has also performed plenty in defending and  empowering females in many ideas admire the a number of starting up belief fund and helping the aged and the needy. A molecular laboratory became once procured and put in to examine for COVID. Over 250 beneficiaries obtained between N250,000 and N10million as COVID-19  relaxed loan.

Fayemi’s 2d term has witnessed  model  in concrete phrases than his first coming. Here is whatever the lean resources of the tell. Ekiti is one the tell that earns the least federal allocation. All communities in the tell were touched by the JKF 2 administration and certainly, his executive is de facto reclaiming the land and restoring Ekiti values. As his administration winds to an finish, it’s hoped that the continuing projects will likely be performed especially  the agro allied cargo airport scheduled to be delivered subsequent twelve months August.  Congratulations to Ekiti folks for deciding on aesthetic and I pray that he finishes successfully.
