Hon. Ajibade Owolabi who gave this commendation in a chat with newsmen, said the actions of the governor so far has really shown that Ekiti people will know his administration for  better because he was well prepared for the tasks ahead.

The council Boss expressed his gratitude to the governor for his support at all time since the inception of this present administration in Ekiti state.

He described the governor as God’s sent to Ekiti people considering all the develomental progress and community engagements of the governor and his cabinet in the last two hundred days in office.

The former House of Assembly member therefore thanked all Ekiti indigenes home and diaspora for their comments and encouragement so far. He solicited the support of well-meaning Ekiti people including stakeholders who resides outside Ekiti State, noting that government cannot do it alone.

Hon. Owolabi who reiterated more commitment to community development, adding that his administration will not rest on it’s oars and will take welfare of the two communities which includes security of lives and properties, healthcare insurance scheme and social security for senior citizens as a priority.

According to him, “As a matter of fact, the governor would not release any money to the local government or LCDA without knowing what you want to do with the money. You will first seek approval at the finance and general purpose committee meeting where an inspector from the state is a member.

Other members include Kabiyesi and the council management team. After the committee approval, you then write the governor through the ministry of LG with extract from the F&GPC meeting.

He explained that the final approval will come from the the governor. The state government monitors the projects through the ministry engineers. So it is not possible for you to receive any fund and you keep it or misappropriate it for what the money is not meant for.

The All Progressives Congress stalwart, however, highlighted some of the projects embarked upon by his administration in the Okemesi/Ido-Ile LCDA which includes; Reconstruction of damaged box culvert at Okerena area, Okemesi, Construction of 600M line drainage at Okeokuta, Okemesi, Construction of 200M line drainage at Ido-Ile, Construction of 30 open market stalls at a new market in Ido Ile, Construction of abbatoir in Okemesi and Construction of offices building at the permanent site of the LCDA which include receptionist office plus 14 other offices each with ante room and toilet facilities.

Others are Drilling of Borehole at the permanent site, Empowerment programmes to farmers and women, Distribution of Knapsack sprayers plus Herbicides and cutlasses to 30 farmers in each Ward at the beginning of the planting season, Distribution of Gas Cylinders to at least 10 women in each Ward, Raising of 1,500 Oil palm seedlings which the council is planning to sell to farmers at subsidized rate, and Cultivation of 5,000 heaps of Hybrid Maize Inter-cropped with Hybrid cassava, Grading of township as well as rural roads to ease the movement of farm produce in both Okemesi and Ido-Ile axis, purchase of laptop and JAMB forms to brilliant but indigent students and the repair of 2 of the 3 dead vehicles we inherited from Ekiti West Local Government secretariat in Aramoko-Ekiti.

The LCDA Boss also hinted that, “the LCDA is still an appe tondage of parent council, meaning that whatever comes to the parent council (Ekiti West LG), is shared among our two LCDAs and the parent council. We are also developing our permanent site in preparation for the transformation of the LCDA to a full-fledged local government”.

“We must keep hope alive because with the current president of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu who’s the pace setter as the first civilian Governor to create LCDA in Nigeria, he may want to complete what he started by upgrading LCDA to full fledged LG. An LCDA without buildings of it’s own may not be considered for upgrading. So what we need most now is the development of our permanent site”, Ajibade stated.
