EKITI State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, yesterday said his administration had revived the state-owned Ikun Diary Farm which had for long been abandoned by his predecessors, despite prospects of daily production of 9000 litres of milk when fully operational.
Fayemi stated this at the Ekiti House of Assembly, while reviewing his activities since inauguration as part of activities marking his one year in office.
Reiterating his determination never to renege on the promises he made to Ekiti people during his campaign, while noting that every sector has received far reaching attention from government, he promised that the dairy farm will boost economic fortunes of the state by creating more employment opportunities for the people.
Fayemi equally used the occasion to say that Ekiti State is better off on all parameters when compared to where it was under the immediate past administration.
According to him, the state achieved the feat through strategic partnerships with private investors, explaining that his government is poised to taking Ekiti to next level of sustainable development.
On workers welfare, the governor stated that prompt payment of salaries and pensioners arrears as and when due will be prioritised to enhance standard of living of the people, adding that he will begin by defraying outstanding debts owed by the previous administration in the state just like he has paid over N30 billion debt owed by his predecessor.
In his welcome remark, Speaker of Ekiti House of Assembly, Fuminiyi Afuye said that Gov. Fayemi’s visit demonstrates his devotion to carrying everyone along in the scheme of affairs
