Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has assured residents of the state of his administration’s resolve to focus more on rehabilitation and reconstruction of township roads in 2022 to bring about meaningful development and boost the general economic status of the people.

Fayemi, who stated this on Sunday during his monthly radio and television programme, tagged ‘Meet Your Governor’, said he would continue to ensure adequate welfare of the people of the state by ensuring that he addressed projects and programmes that would enliven their lives and add values to their welfare.

 The governor said that his administration had paid over N1billion to pensioners to ameliorate their suffering as senior citizens despite the dearth of funds in the state, adding that his government had already looked for ways through promissory notes with financial institutions to access funds to clear the backlog of gratuity but for one reason or the other, the pensioners rejected the agreement.

 Speaking further, the governor dismissed the insinuation that the state collected bailout from the federal government to pay arrears of workers’ salaries. He said what the states got was a bridge finance to fill the holes created by the deduction for the repayment of an earlier bailout.
