ADO-EKITI— Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), has lauded the efforts of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, in developing the state; describing him as an agent of change, who should be supported and encouraged to do more.
The former Head of State, who said he was impressed by the massive infrastructure development activities in the state, particularly the roads and the urban renewal projects and the huge investment in health and education sectors, urged Ekiti citizens to rally support for the governor so that he can take the state to a lofty height and make it the envy of other states.
Gen. Gowon, who spoke with newsmen after a prayer session for the governor and the state at the Government House Chapel, yesterday, urged Ekiti residents to support Fayemi’s developmental efforts with prayers and also support him electorally if he indicated interest for a second term in office.
The former head of state recalled that Fayemi was particularly prayed for at the “Nigeria Prays” programme in April 2007, when he contested the gubernatorial election. He stated that though it took three and half years for the prayers to manifest (through his inauguration as governor), the plan of God to transform the state through him is gradually being fulfilled.
