Fayemi who was represented by his deputy Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi expressed his dissatisfaction at the number of federal projects in the state saying he would not relent until projects like railways and airport become reality in the state. He said the state government was yet to receive any refunded in spite of the fact that Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, certified the expenditure of N11 billion out of the N21 billion spent by the Ekiti State government on the maintenance of federal roads across the state. The governor further solicited the intervention of the Federal Government in the completion of the dualisation of Ado-Akure Road and the rehabilitation of Ado-Aramoko-Ijero Road, Ado-Ifaki-Ilorin Road and Ifaki-Omuo Road. Fayemi said: “We wish to use the opportunity of your visit to also present the following request to you, trusting you that you will use your good office to help us.

It is a journey that should not take more than an hour but now takes two hours, thirty minutes to get to the town. “Ado-Ikare Road needs to be dualized, we have done part of it. It is my hope and prayer that the outcome of this tour will have a significant and positive impact on the infrastructural development of this zone.” Earlier, the leadership of the National Assembly vowed to include more Ekiti State federal road projects in the 2019 Budget, saying it was aware that Ekiti needs more ‘Trunk A’ roads to facilitate movement of goods and services across the state. Gaya said, “I learnt that there were few projects done by Federal Government in the state even though Senator Biodun Olujimi and Senator Fatimat Raji Rasaki are working hard to ensure that new projects come into the state. “Presently we are working on Efon Alaaye Itawure-Iwaraja Road. Hopefully, the contractor handling the project will deliver it by March next year. “I think Ekiti State needs more roads by the Federal Government and I believe Governor Fayemi is dynamic and very hardworking.
