Former Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni and the senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial District, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has felicitated with residents of the state on the new year, urging them not to be driven to despair by the state of affairs in the country.

The duo, in their separate new year messages to the people of the state, said there would be the fulfilment of dreams and aspirations in the new year.

Oni said: “This is always a hopeful time, as we celebrate the beginning of 2022. I urge you to fear not, trust in God and believe that help is on the way to Rebuild Back Better and Rediscover the Ekiti Dream.

“While 2021 was difficult for many of us, we must look forward to the new year with the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us. I am confident we will come back, and we are going to come back even better and stronger than before. 

“Your clarion call to me to return in the service of the state has met my preparedness to serve you again and even better. But we must come together, keep together and work together to get things done. I do not doubt that we will do better when we work together.  

“I want to assure the people of Ekiti that we are ready to rebuild our security architecture, human capital ecosystem and infrastructure in technology and construction. We will partner you to rediscover the Ekiti Dream, where we shall collectively build a prosperous land, seek the forgotten and leave no one behind.”

Olujimi in her statement said: “I am very pleased to welcome everyone especially at a time like this where we are pursuing the reconciliation efforts towards the 2022 elections. An election we believe will usher in a new PDP government in Ekiti State. 

“Within the year under review, several challenges have been faced especially around the response to the COVID -19 pandemic which has been ravaging the world since 2020. In 2021, Nigeria has experienced the third and fourth waves of the pandemic. However, we give God the glory that he has preserved us to see this date. 

“As we continue, let us not forget to continue observing COVID protocols of handwashing, mask-wearing as the newest variant of the disease is more virulent and the symptoms may differ from the ones we have become accustomed to looking out for. May God protect us always, please be safe.”
