The Onikun of Ikun Amure – Ekiti, Oba Olusola Olatunde, has described the governor of Ekiti State, Dr John Kayode Fayemi, as a man whose life ambition is to develop and add value to humanity.
Oba Olatunde made this observation, while playing host to the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Fayemi on Tourism Development, Ambassador Wale Ojo- Lanre, in his palace on Saturday.
The traditional ruler said, “I must confess to the fact that Governor Fayemi is a thoroughbred humanist, whose activities and acts as a governor are geared toward the development of this state and upliftment of humanity.
“He is a God-fearing human being whose development initiatives in the town are legendry. Such a man is an inestimable asset both for the state and the nation “
Oba Olatunde pointed out that “for me and my people in Ikun Amure – Ekiti, Governor Fayemi has remained the best political personality, whose footprints of development in the town will ever remain indelible”
Ambassador Ojo – Lanre, who led an investor, Agboola Olufemi and a team of Team Ekiti Tourism Development on a sightseeing tour of Ero Dam, paid a courtesy visit to Oba Olatunde, adding that the visit to the palace was necessitated to fulfil a normal process of paying homage to who it is due.
He described Oba Olatunde and the people of Ikun Amure – Ekiti as a lovely bunch of good people, who are not ingrate monsters, having acknowledged and appreciated the good work of Governor Fayemi in Ekiti State
Disclosing that Ikun town and the indigenes are grateful to Governor Fayemi, who is turning Ikun town to a destination of purpose and relevance by his stride at revamping the Ikun Dairy Farms and the development of Ero Dam as a domestic project as well as a tourism resort, Oba Olatunde revealed that Ikun is safe and secured for investors and tourists, adding that his people have done well at making Ikun Ekiti the safest town in Nigeria, where theft and pilfering are anathemas and a town where it is a taboo for animals to roam the streets.
Congratulating Lanre-Ojo on his appointment, Oba Olatunde prayed for the Senior Special Assistant, adding that he has been following the activities of the SSA right from the time he was appointed Director- General, Council for Arts and Culture, maintaining that he has proved to be a worthy Ambassador of Ekiti
The monarch also applauded the Team Ekiti Tourism Development, who visited him, including: Mr Rotimi Awelewa, Mr Ojo Olabanji Olorunbukunmi, Mrs Jumoke Oluropo Owoola, Commissioner 2 in Ekiti TESCOM, Mrs Tola Ajayi Odoko, Jeremiah Okonjo, Gideon Samuel and Hon Johnson Olatunde.
