Ekiti State Governor, Mr ‎Ayodele Fayose, has said he will never take
the love and support the people of the state are showing to him for

He said it is not in his character to repay good with evil. He also posited that this has always prompted him to give his best to the people despite the economic rating and condition of the state.

He spoke disclosed this at Ikere-Ekiti at the weekend where a mammoth crowd welcomed him to the inauguration of the extended and dualised Ado-Ikere Road.

‎In a statement on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu
Adelusi, the governor said he would take the extension and dualisation
of the road deep into the centre of Ikere.

This is just as he promised that no project would be left uncompleted
by his administration.

He added that work would start next January on the further extension
of th‎e road project.

Fayose also said the rehabilitation of the College of Education Road
in the town would commence next week. “I am really overwhelmed by the great support of the people for our administration across the state. The turn out today to welcome us to this great occasion is touching and moving. This is the reason why my enemies are suffering and lamenting in silence.

They know the people of the state are behind us. The people have given
me a rare opportunity to lead them for the second time, the first in
the history of the state.

“We are also doing our best by giving you needed amenities and
services despite the paucity of funds and the economic recession in
the country. People are comparing notes. They know and see what goes
on in other places that are richer than us and are convinced that we
are trying our best. We will not disappoint you. Our enemies are
confounded ‎because they don’t know that God’s calling is without

“God is making the way for us and we have the will to perform and when
there is a will, there is a way. History is recording everything we
are doing. None of the projects we are doing will be taken away by me
when leaving office, but those coming after us will say it was Fayose
would did this project and that,” he opined.

The governor solicited further support and cooperation of the people,
saying the second half of the administration’s life span‎ would
witness further developmental strides.
