Ekiti State Governor,  Dr. Kayode Fayemi on Tuesday  commenced a two-day briefing with Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the state aimed at fine-tuning the strategic development plans of his administration.

The briefing which  involved presentations and defence of work plans by heads of MDAs is a follow up to the retreat organised for top government functionaries earlier in the month.

The Governor said the meeting which involved the Office of Transformation, Strategy and Service Delivery (OTSD) and the Ministry of Budget and Economic Planning would decide what the real priorities are for the ministries and allocate resources to them accordingly.

He added that  the OTSD and the Ministry of Budget will however embark on monitoring and evaluation of the performance of the MDAs in respect of  their priorities and the resources allocated to them.

The MDAs that participated in Monday’s exercise include Ministry of Health and Human Services, Ministry of Works and Transport, Ministry of Local Government and Community Development, , Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Services, Ministry of Lands and Urban Development, Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

During the meeting, the Commissioner for Health, Dr Moji Yaya-Kolade noted that the health sector suffered a huge setback during the previous administration as the ministry was not adequately catered for.

The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Dr Folakemi Olomojobi, also corroborated this, adding that the State Health Databank had underperformed because the annual subscription for the centre was not funded by the past administration.

Yaya-Kolade noted that the State’s Teaching Hospital as well as the other secondary health facilities in the state are facing “serious competition from ABUAD and Federal Teaching Hospital Ido,” adding that all heads of health facilities in the state “must work together in a strategic manner” to ensure that the facilities provide quality healthcare services for the people.
