Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Ayodele Fayose has began to fulfill one of his campaign promises that local contractors and artisans would benefit extensively  from projects to be executed by his government.
The governor on Monday evening awarded N1.2 billion contract of furniture making to the Carpenters and Furniture Association of Ekiti State.

Members of the association who gathered in large number at the governor’s office where the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between them and the state government over the project   was signed, were excited and hailed the governor for remembering the masses. Chief of Staff to the Ekiti State government, Chief Dipo Anisulowo who represented the governor at the auspicious occasion, said governor Fayose was giving the local artisans the project as part of his stomach infrastructure scheme aimed at wiping off the tears of poverty from the eyes of the people of Ekiti State.

” This is an empowerment project. We are awarding the furniture aspect of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) project to these local furniture makers. The project covers about six Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Ekiti State, so they will make the chairs and the tables for all the schools in the six LGAs.
” The whole project would cost the government about N1.2 billion. This gesture by the governor is the first of its kind in Ekiti State. The governor did this to make good his promise to empower local contractors and artisans in the state.”
Addressing the carpenters and furniture makers on the need to make good use of the oppurtunity, he said:” I hope you would not disappoint the governor because he has reposed a lot of confidence in you to have given you this project. I pray you will reciprocate his kind gesture by doing a very good job.”

Chairman of the association, Evangelist Micheal Ayodele Adeyemi (JP), who expressed gratitude to the state government on behalf of the association, said: “Today is a great day for our association. We are grateful to our governor. Truly speaking, he is a friend of the masses. About a month ago, had called us for a meeting and gave us this surprise and great job. Please extend our gratitude to him. We pray we won’t let him down. The Chief of Staff has also promised not to let us down and we have high hope in him.”

The event was witnessed by other key government officials such as the Chief Press secretary to the government, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, Chief Protocol officer to the governor, Mr. Muyiwa Akindeji, MDG’s secretary in the state, Mr. James Owolabi, as well as care-taker chairmen of Emure-Ekiti, Gbonyin, Moba and Ise-Orun LGAs.
