Ekiti State Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, has said the Kayode Fayemi administration has brought smiles to the people through policies executed since coming to power in October 2018.
Egbeyemi said the state government has paid one month salary arrears owed by the Ayodele Fayose administration to civil servants while it has also commenced payment of severance allowance to former political office holders.
The Deputy Governor in a statement by his Special Assistant (Media), Odunayo Ogunmola, said the gesture was in fulfillment of Fayemi’s promise to make the life of Ekiti people better and ensure that all and sundry feel the positive impact of the government.
Egbeyemi said Fayemi’s priority is the welfare of the people which shaped the policy thrust of his administration.
He spoke while addressing religious leaders, political office holders and civil servants at the Government House, Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
