- Governor Fayose disclosed the news at a rally by commercial motorcyclists from the 16 councils in the state
Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti has said that former president Goodluck Jonathan will on Wednesday, April 25 inaugurate the Ado-Ekiti Flyover.
Fayose disclosed this on Monday, April 23, at a rally by commercial motorcyclists from the 16 local government councils in support of Kolapo Olusola, the deputy governor of the state, The Nation reports.
Niyi Dahunsi, the chairman of the commercial motorcycle riders association in Ekiti state, said the rally was held in support of Olusola “to enable the good work continue.”
Dahunsi remarked: “We have tasted other governments, but none has done well as this one. This is why we are not ashamed to troop to the streets in solidarity with Olusola.
“Over 10,000 motorcycle riders, mostly youths, have resolved to support the deputy governor so he can continue from where Governor Fayose will stop.”
Deeply moved by their solidarity, the deputy governor said: “I will not ban Okada from plying Ekiti roads, if I become the governor. Those who will chase you away from the roads must not become governor. When they were in government, they messed up our economy and left a huge debt.
“We must not let them come back. APC is cancerous. We must not allow their cancer to infect us. They have dismissed the flyover, but it has not only beautified Ado- Ekiti, it will also herald development.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital on August 17, witnessed another step in infrastructural transformation as the state government commenced the dualization of Awedele - Bank Road - Bashiri Road. This was one of the election campaign promises of the governor to the people of the state.
