Ekiti to demolish more houses for flyover project

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has revealed his readiness to demolish more houses in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, to pave way for the ongoing construction of a flyover.

Speaking on Monday evening during this month’s edition of his media chat, Meet Your Governor, aired on the major electronic media in the state, Fayose said the demolition exercise will commence on September 12.

Fayose said the demolition of houses along the flyover route was to construct road beside the bridge to ease mobility and traffic.

He, however, apologized to the residents, motorists, pedestrians and commuters coming in and out of Ado Ekiti for the inconveniences being experienced over the construction of flyover.

He said, “From next Monday, houses will be demolished for the road construction to complement the flyover. We are also going to demolish buildings constructed along flood plains.”

The governor said there would be a low-key celebration of the 20th anniversary of the creation of Ekiti State on October 1 and the second anniversary of his administration on October 16.

He said: “We will have a very low-key celebration; if it is only prayer we will organize to mark the day. We are going to do it because of the current economic situation of the state. We must live within the ambit of our resources.”

The governor vowed not to relent in his efforts to change the face of Ado Ekiti, saying the decision to take traders using wheelbarrow to market their wares off the streets was to ensure sanity.

Fayose also promised to organize free eye tests, free blood tests and free blood pressure tests for residents in all the 16 local government areas of the state to boost health care delivery of citizens.
