Fayemi said that no money had been refunded to the state despite the fact that the Minister of Works, Mr Babatunde Fashola, certified the expenditure of N11 billion out of the N21 billion spent by the Ekiti State government on the maintenance of federal roads across the state.
The governor, represented by his deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, said this while receiving members of the Senate Committee on Works led by their chairman, Senator Kabiru Gaya, who were on an inspection visit to federal roads and other projects in the state as part of their oversight functions.
He also requested the completion and the dualisation of Ado-Akure Road, the rehabilitation of Ado-Aramoko-Ijero Road, Ado-Ifaki-Ilorin Road, and Ifaki-Omuo Road.
The governor said, “We wish to use the opportunity of your visit to also present the following request to you, trusting that you will use your good office to help us.
“Ado-Ikare Road needs to be dualised, we have done part of it. It is my hope and prayers that the outcome of this tour will have a significant and positive impact on the infrastructural development of this zone.”
Gaya, who said some federal projects were ongoing in the state, promised that more federal road projects in Ekiti State would be included in the 2019 Budget. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
