Fayose, also commended the tremendous contributions of the past military and civilian administrations of Col. Mohammed Usman, Commodore Atanda Yusuf, Dr Kayode Fayemi, Niyi Adebayo and Segun Oni, in building the state to its enviable height through their leadership.
Ekiti State was created on October 1, 1996 alongside Bayelsa, Gombe, Nasarawa , Ebonyi and Zamfara States.
Addressing stakeholders at the Oluyemi Kayode stadium after the Independence Walk, which kicked off from Mathew Street in Ado Ekiti, Fayose commended the military dictator and Ekiti founding fathers for actualizing the dream for the state’s creation.
“Let me commend Gen. Abacha for creating the state and I also thank our founding fathers for their vision. Though, I didn’t participate in the struggle, but I am a beneficiary and many children and governors yet unborn will also benefit.
“Ekiti has scored many firsts within the two years I came on board.
“Ekiti recorded first in transparency in budget provision. It came first in 2016 NECO and these came at the most auspicious time when Ekiti is 20. Our desire now is to buckle up and work harder for more service delivery for the good of you and I.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
