Oyebanji leading Ekiti to wealth and prosperity, says Information Commissioner

The Ekiti State Governor, Abiodun Oyebanji is leading the agrarian state to prosperity and wealth creation, the State Commissioner for Information, Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun
has said.

In a statement made available to Irohinoodua Olatubosun said the Shared Prosperity agenda of Oyebanji
administration aimed at boosting the standard of living of the people
of the state is on course.

Rt. Hon. Olatunbosun said Governor Biodun Oyebanji has the people at
the centre of his Shared Prosperity vision which is anchored on the
six pillars agenda carefully crafted to achieve sustainable
development in the Land of Honour.

The Commissioner who made the remarks when he received in audience the
Forum of General Managers of Radio and Television stations in Ekiti
State in his office in Ado Ekiti, stressed that all sectors are
receiving attention to make life easier and better for the citizenry.

Olatunbosun explained that workers, pensioners, artisans, market men
and women, transporters youths, students, local businessmen, local
contractors, local auto dealers and the poorest of the poor are
feeling the impact of the Oyebanji Administration.

The Government’s spokesman noted that investment in agriculture,
infrastructure, tourism, digital technology and financial empowerment
of the poor are already yielding positive results and making
appreciable impact in the grassroots economy.

According to him, the recent payment of about N1 billion gratuity to
pensioners at once was unprecedented in the history of the state and
was in fulfillment of the governor’s promise to give attention to the
welfare of retirees and activate gradual payments of backlog of
accumulated entitlements.

He added that the state government ensures regular payment of workers’
salaries and regular remittance of deductions to their cooperative
societies to give them access to loans to execute personal projects,
among other worker-friendly policies in recognition of their critical
role as the engine room of execution of government policies.

The Commissioner stressed that only capital projects that would bring
economic benefits to the people in line with the Shared Prosperity
mantra of the administration are being executed across the State.

These, he said, include intrastate roads, rural roads, roads that lead
to farms, markets, schools, hospitals, adding that the Independent
Power Project that will soon be commissioned is a breakthrough in
access to power supply for key institutions of government.

Olatunbosun stated that Ekiti Wealth Bill and Start-Up Bill recently
passed by the House of Assembly are very key in keeping money in
reserve for development purposes and providing funds for school
leavers and graduates who cannot be employed by the government.

He craved the support of the media in articulating the vision,
programmes and policies of the state government describing the media
as an important partner in delivering good governance to the people of Ekiti State.
