Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi on Thursday commissioned ten major roads totaling 103 km in fulfillment of the resolve of his administration to make all the communities in the State accessible by motorable roads by 2014.

The Governor also commissioned five water treatment plants as part of people-oriented projects scheduled to mark the second anniversary of his administration.

The ten roads which are located in Ekiti Central Senatorial District include 14.3 km Erijinyan-Ilawe road, 12km Odo Owa- Oke Ila, 6.25km Awo-Iyin road, 24km Ikogosi-Efon road, 11.5km Ado- Ilawe  road, and 5km Fajuyi- Basiri- Police headquarters road.
Others are 1.65km Fajuyi -Teaching Hospital road,10.75km Ado- Afao road,2km Ijigbo- Isato and 13km Osun- Iloro road.

Commissioning the various roads, Governor Fayemi said the construction, reconstruction and rehabilitation of the roads became necessary following their deplorable condition which had given “motorists nightmarish experiences traversing the roads”.

According to the Governor, the government decided to award the roads, especially those leading to Ado Ekiti in November 2011in order to ameliorate the sufferings of motorists and also to give the State capital a face-lift even as  Fajuyi –Teaching Hospital road was planned to link the on-going Ado-Iworoko-Ifaki road with Fajuyi Park.
He added that Government is rehabilitating 16 other roads within the township to  make Ado-Ekiti an enviable State capital.

While commissioning the Ado-Afao road, the Governor said the  rehabilitation of the road will undoubtedly be a great relief to motorists using the road especially Motorists going towards Ikole and the northern part as it is a shorter link than the Ado-Ifaki road.

Fayemi who noted that the road was constructed by Ayo Fayose in 2005 added that  the road did not last and became a hide out for miscreants.
He stated that the rehabilitation will  enhance the economic activities of the residents along the road.

The five water treatment plants and reservoir commissioned are located at Ipole Iloro, Efon, Ido Ile, Okemesi and Mary Hill Ado Ekiti.
Fayemi said the water projects are to achieve the target of his administration to provide potable water to at least 80 per cent of the State population by 2014.

He said concerted efforts are being put in place to ensure that all the four dams in the State become functional as a bulk of the 2013 budget will be expended on water.

Meanwhile a new dawn is now experienced by the people of Odo Uro, a communtiy in Iyin Ekiti as the Governor commissioned a rural electrification project for the community.
The scope of work done involved about 0.1km Inter Town Connection (ITC), 1.8km Township Distribution Network (TDN), a 300KVA transformer and street lighting.

Fayemi who commissioned the project said the State Government realizes the importance of electricity supply to the economic and social development of rural communities hence the prime place of Infrastructural Development in the administration’s 8 Point Agenda.

A health centre at Ido Ile and a Skills Acquisition Centre at Iropora Ekiti which were carried out under the State Community and Social Development Agency were commissioned.

Speaking on Fayemi’s achievements, the Owa Ooye of Okemesi, Oba Gbadebo Adedeji has commended the Governor and urged him not to be discouraged by criticisms but should see such as a “tonic” that would spur him to work more for the development of the State.
The traditional ruler lauded Fayemi for the rapid and evenly distributed dividends of democracy that has got to virtually all communities in the State;saying that the gesture is unprecedented.
