The Governors of Sokoto, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal; Kebbi, Atiku Bagudu; and Jigawa, Mohammed Baduru, will on Friday visit Ekiti State to commission various road projects initiated and completed by the administration of Governor Kayode Fayemi.

A statement by the Commissioner for Information, Akin Omole, on Thursday said the trio would commission projects, as part of the activities marking the third anniversary of Fayemi’s government.

The governors, according to Omole, would, during their visit, commission Ijan-Igbemo-Ire-Ilupeju, Oye-Ikun-Kwara State Boundary and Aramoko-Erijiyan-Ikogosi roads.

Omole said: “The council deliberated on and approved for the rehabilitation of township roads in the state, to be carried out by the Ekiti State Public Works Corporation through direct labour. It was approved that the corporation should expedite the works ahead of the anticipated high traffic during the upcoming festive period.”

He said the Ekiti State Executive Council at its meeting held on Wednesday, and in line with the provisions of the Chiefs Law (2012) Cap C5 Law of Ekiti State, approved the appointment of Prince Aniyi Sunday Aikuirawo as the new Obaleo of Erinmope-Ekiti.
