ADO-EKITI—GOVERNOR Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has given a two-week ultimatum to Landlords and shopowners of properties located on the path of on-going dualization in Ado-Ekiti to give way for contractor handling the job to commence work in earnest.
Fayose, moving from one shop to the other at old Motor Park and Ijigbo Junction in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, told shopowners that they needed to urgently find an alternative so that contractors can move to site quickly with the approaching dry season.
According to him, “we need to maximize the opportunity of the coming dry season and finish this road dualization project on time so that we can move into other things we want to do to give Ado-Ekiti a new look that would make it a befitting state capital.”
On payment of compensation to landlords affected by the project, the governor assured that ““like in the last exercise where compensation was paid within two weeks of demolition, those affected now need not entertain any fear as arrangements for prompt payment has been made”, he disclosed. However, the landlords expressed confidence in the Fayose administration and assured the governor of their co-operation in the task of developing the state capital.
They also thanked him for his comforting words that they would be compensated in due course. Also, Governor Fayose has promised to bring succour to goat sellers at Odo-Otu Goat Market in Ado-Ekiti with a pledge to package a revolving loan to aide their business.
He also agreed to the request of the traders for a piece of land for the relocation of the goat market. Meanwhile, the governor seized the opportunity to appeal to all and sundry in the state to embrace peace and good neighbourliness as it is in the atmosphere of peaceful co-existence that development can take place.
