Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, says no political position is worth the blood of anyone.

The governor said “it is only God that enthrones leaders” and admonished political parties and their followers to eschew violence by “playing the game according to the rules”.

Fayemi spoke on Friday at a “State-of-The-State” programme lined up as part of activities to mark his third anniversary as governor.

He assured that the preparations for the 2022 gubernatorial election in the state will not affect projects execution and service delivery.


“This administration has only one year left, but I can assure you we shall work till the very last day. We have spent 1,095 days, which translates to three years,” he said.

“The next final year will be used to build on our existing performance, and no project will be left uncompleted.

“All abandoned projects by the previous administration had been completed by us, with only a few others still at various stages of completion, but I am giving my words that by the time I leave office, there will not be any project left unattended to.


“As we move gradually into the electioneering period, I enjoin all Ekiti persons to avoid politics of bitterness. We are all brothers and sisters

“It is also my prayers that may the wish of God prevail on our journey to the next political dispensation.”

On the performance of his administration in the last three years, Fayemi said more than 1,000 projects had been completed and inaugurated.

He said 1,000 rural roads embarked upon across the three senatorial districts were either completed or ongoing.


The governor said efforts were being intensified to improve the current “unacceptable” level of power supply in the state.

He said his government had finalised an agreement with the Niger Delta Power Company to kick-start a 7.0-megawatt power generation.

On the state of the Ado-Ekiti-Akure road, Fayemi said he was unhappy with the situation. He said his administration would continue to engage the federal government towards ensuring that something is done to alleviate the people’s suffering.

He said apart from regular payment of salaries, his administration had strengthened the civil service and motivated workers by increasing the tempo of local and foreign training for workers.


On agriculture, Fayemi said his administration had promoted agri-business to create wealth through mechanised and agro-allied means.

“I am convinced that within our ability possible, we have been faithful to the Ekiti people when it comes to fulfilling electioneering promises,” the governor said.
