Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has inaugurated the newly elected chairmen and vice chairmen for the 16 local government councils in the state.
During the event, he urged the council chiefs to focus on the welfare of the people at the grassroots and make themselves very accessible at all times.
He added that they should ensure that they make a very important impact on the lives of the people.
His words, “As the government at the grassroots, you have to ensure that people-oriented programmes and projects are made your priorities. While you should key into the state priorities, I also expect you to develop your own with your budget estimates with the support of the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development.
“In this regard, I enjoin you all to align with the state government policies and programmes as boldly and expressly enunciated in our five-point agenda of governance, agriculture and rural development, social investments, knowledge economy, and infrastructure and industrial development.”
