Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, was on Tuesday sworn into office with a promise to work harder and better the lives of the people. Fayemi promised not to disappoint the people who gave him a rare privilege of coming to office for the second time.
Speaking shortly after the oath of allegiance and the oath of office was administered on him and the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, by the Chief Judge, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, Fayemi said he is not on a revenge mission.
Fayemi who took the oath of office at about 12.25 pm said he will ensure that the payment of arrears of workers’ salaries is fully and firmly addressed as soon as possible.
The governor said his administration will concentrate on four cardinal areas to make the difference in the life of the people.
These include agriculture and rural development, social investment, infrastructure development and entrenching knowledge economy.
He pleaded for the patience and understanding of Ekiti people and promised not to let them down.
The governor said he will review all documents to know the exact financial situation of the state and make findings known to the people within 100 days.
According to him, the day signalled the “end of an era and end of an error in which Ekiti passed through wilderness in the last four years.”
