Ekiti State governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose on Thursday in Okesa, Ado Ekiti distributed cheques worth N200m to the second bash of landlords whose properties are to give way for the construction of 1.2km Fajuyi/Ojumose flyover.
Governor Fayose in his address thanked the chiefs and residents for their understanding and cooperation with the assurance that his government's action is in Ekiti's best interest.
The High Chief Asa of Okesa, Ado Ekiti, Chief Kayode Ogunleye who spoke on behalf of the residents appreciated governor Fayose for living up to his promise of paying compensation to property owners before demolishing their properties also pleaded with the governor on behalf of the residents to allow them exhume the remains of their buried ones before the commencement of demolition, a request governor Fayose granted expressly.
Governor Fayose who said he's giving affected residents two weeks to exhume the remains of their buried ones as requested urged the gathering to support him in his campaign against open defecation in the state.
