Fayemi says governance is delivering quality projects
• Commends Wike for outstanding performance
Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) and Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has said that governance is about improving the quality and condition of the society.
Also, the governor said that governance is about ensuring that politicians fulfill their promises to the people. Fayemi stated this in Port Harcourt yesterday while commissioning the Rumuwoji International Market built by Governor Nyesom Wike administration. He said though he is not in the same political party with Wike, his duty as Chairman of NGF is to support, protect and defend all governors irrespective of their party affiliations.
The Ekiti State governor, who commended his Rivers State counterpart for his outstanding performance, said: “We are proud of him (Governor Wike). We are proud of the work he is doing in Rivers State. He is going to continue to commission projects till September 27. That is almost 10 days from now.
“Even if it is one project per day, it will be almost 10 days. Now, I understand why they refer to him as Mr. Project.“The promise that the governor made is what he is fulfilling today. That is what governance is all about. Government is about affecting the lives of our people.”Wike, in his address, said that he pledged to rebuild the market and that the commissioning of the Rumuwoji Market is a fulfillment of that promise.
“I made a promise to construct this market. We started this market from the foundation to its completion. “When we make promises to the people, we are bound to fulfill the promises. Hold us accountable to our promises because there is no need for excuses. We made a promise and we have fulfilled that promise,” he said.
He said that he would give allocation to Rumuwoji community, Rumuwoji women and other people would get their shops through open balloting. “I will give Rumuwoji women shop allocations in this market and I advise that they should not sell their shops because we will release funds for the Rumuwoji women to ply their trade,” he said. The governor also promised to build a market for the Nkpolu community as a means of improving the economy of the area.
