Fayemi reiterates commitment to community projects
Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has said that his administration will ensure completion and sustenance of 675 community and social development micro projects across rural communities within the time-frame of delivery.
Fayemi gave the assurance, yesterday, when he received the National Co-ordinator of Community and Social Development Project (CSDP), Dr. Abdulkarim Obaje, and his team in Ado-Ekiti during a monitoring and documentation tour of CSDP projects in the South-West.
The governor, who was represented by Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, said that community project was one of the five pillars of his administration as entrenched in agricultural and rural development agenda.
He said the community and social development projects had brought governance in the state closer to the people at the grassroots, adding that this has enabled the people not only to participate in the conception, implementation and supervision of projects, but also take ownership of such projects.
This, he said, had enhanced the sustainability of such projects across communities in the state.
Fayemi, therefore, solicited further inclusion of Ekiti State as beneficiary in other community projects that would be executed by the organisation across the country.
Earlier in his remarks, Obaje, who was represented by his Technical Assistant, Mr. Tunde Falola, said the tour of the projects was to document and showcase the success story of community and social development projects executed in the state.
He said that the initiative would afford the organisation to show to the people of the state and the country that the money invested in such projects were judiciously used.
