Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti, says the state was “in a dungeon” when he assumed office.

Fayemi spoke in Ikere-Ekiti, on Tuesday during his “Thank You” tour of the Ekiti-south senatorial district, as part of the activities marking the end of his tenure.

The governor said in the past four years,  his administration has delivered on its campaign promises to restore the values of Ekiti people.

He said his administration had also laid the foundation for sustainable development.


He said his administration performed well in the areas of education, human capital development, health, social security, social amenities and infrastructural development in all the senatorial districts of the state.

The governor said the legacies would be sustained by the incoming administration.

“It is easy to forget that when we embarked upon this journey four years ago, Ekiti was still in the dungeon,” Fayemi said.


“We had a lot of challenges and we promised to restore the values of our people and reclaim the land for progress and development.

“I believe that four years down the line we have discharged that duty to the best of our ability.

“I think we can tick the box in all of the areas in which we pledged to make life better for our people whether in education, human capital development.”

Fayemi noted that his administration upgraded the college of education in the district to the University of Education, Science and Technology and named it after the late Bamidele Olumilua.


He said the upgrade was to complement the state, federal and private universities in Ekiti.

The governor also described the Ekiti airport project as “extensive” and said the “knowledge zone“ linked to it would in future constitute an airport city.
