Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has emphasized the need for the country to have virile and functional local government system.
Fayose also reiterated the determination of his administration to conduct local government election in the state.
He spoke during an interdenominational thanksgiving service to mark his 55th birthday in Ado-Ekiti.
In a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor noted that a virile local government system would take a lot of pressure from the state level.
He said, “Not everybody can come to Ado-Ekiti to see the governor, but people at local level can readily relate with council bosses. Moreover, the state cannot do all things, it is the local government that will complement that.
“We are therefore committed to a virile local government system and we are going to hold local government elections in this state by December 19 this year, by the grace of God.
“If it is only one political party that is ready to take part in the poll, no problem, we would do it. Boycotting election has never been used to annul elections in the country, “he added.
