The Legislators who said they were also in town to take up fresh assignment from the governor in line with their commitment to Governor Oyebanji’s transformative moves to ensure the welfare of Ekiti people.

“I am in Company of my senior brother, distinguished Senator Olubunmi Adetumbi and we are here to further consult on what His Excellency started three weeks ago when he met with the entire National Assembly caucus comprising three Senators and six House of Representatives members and he gave us various assignments as to how we could join hands with the state government to pull all the human and financial resources available at the centre to Ekiti.

“We know that it is something that means so much to the Governor and he’s taking it very seriously and after he held this meeting with us, he had been in Abuja twice to follow up at different MDAs and so for us this is something that means so much to him and he is leading by example in that regards. We could not but key into this aspiration and vision and part of what we are able to do today is to review and see where we stand and give him report of some of the assignments he gave us and take fresh assignments as we go back to Abuja so that we can easily liaise with our colleagues to know that the good works continues, Senator Bamidele said.
