Ekiti State Deputy Governor Prof. Modupe Adelabu has urged workers to join the government in sustaining the pace of development.

She said the Eight-Point Agenda of the Governor Kayode Fayemi administration was designed to better the lot of the masses.

Mrs. Adelabu spoke yesterday in her office during a prayer session marking her resumption.

She urged politicians to “drop bigotry and partisan politics” and support the government’s efforts to rebuild the state.

Explaining that the welfare of workers was a priority of the administration, the deputy governor said: “Any administration that downplays the human factor cannot make any significant achievement.”

She said the relationship between political appointees and civil servants is mutually beneficial and there should be no division.

Mrs. Adelabu said: “We must be ready to work in synergy, love one another and be honest, as these are the prerequisites for attaining mutual corporate success.

“I am not more Ekiti than any of us here. We should not demonise the political office holder or the office. The purpose is lost when the office comes between the occupant and its people.

“The essence of the administration’s eight-point agenda is to remove barriers in governance and make the very needs of the people the basis of executive pronouncements and the legislations of lawmakers.

“It has been our vow to govern Ekiti, not by pretence and deceit, but in truth and with purpose, dedication, focus and transparency. My appointment is divine and God, who ordained it, will surely work with me to make meaningful contributions to the success of the Fayemi administration.”

The Vicar of the Emmanuel Anglican Cathedral, Okeesa, Ado-Ekiti, Rev. Francis Bankole, in his exhortation taken from Philippians 3:13–15, said: “People should not be deterred by past events. Rather, lessons from the past should be taken and applied as one presses forward to achieve a greater tomorrow.”

He urged workers to support the deputy governor and pray for her success.

The Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Paul Omotoso, told Mrs. Adelabu that the ministry is under her supervision and assured her of the workers’ support.

Speaking on behalf of political appointees and civil servants in the Office of the Deputy Governor, the Special Adviser in the office, Mr. Bamitale Oguntoyinbo, described the staff as competent, hardworking and trustworthy, adding that they were prepared to work with her.
