Happening now ! Fayemi holds pre-  anniversary/ valedictory  press  briefing 

Ekiti State governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has commenced his administration’s fourth anniversary and valedictory press briefing .
The media briefing is being anchored by the Commissioner for Information, Akin Omole .
The governor  hinted that his administration had  increased the state’s capital budget for health by 200% to invest more in healthcare and epidemic preparedness/response.
He also disclosed that “we crafted a 30-year State Development Plan 2021 – 2050 which would serve as a critical road map to successive administrations and ensure that regardless of electoral outcomes, Ekiti would always win.
We also implemented a number of successful public-private partnerships deeds such as the Ikun Dairy Farm now being run by Promasidor Limited, and the Ire Burnt Brick which has been revamped now and being run by a competent core investor operator, among others. These companies are functioning well and created jobs for some of our people.
“As a pre-requisite for enlisting in the RAAMP initiative, each State government is required to construct some pilot roads for the Project. Consequently, we provided funds for the construction of the six pilot roads. The six (6) pilot roads, Iyin-Odo Oro- Aroto road and Ago Aduloju-Kajola Road (Ekiti Central Senatorial District), FMS farm, Oke Ako road and Itaji – Imojo-Orisunmibare (Ekiti North Senatorial District) and, Ogotun – Alagbede road and Imesi – Kosomolate – Ipole (Ekiti South Senatorial District), are spread across the three (3) senatorial districts of the State and they are in various stages of completion.
“We increased our capital budget for health by 200% to invest more in healthcare and epidemic preparedness/response.  This enabled us to renovate 14 General and State Specialist Hospitals with the provision of relevant and modern equipment. This development has resulted in increased demand for services, improved quality of services and boosted staff morale. Most importantly, these facilities are now model referral centres for the State’s network of primary and basic healthcare centres.
“We have successfully implemented the policy of, at least, one Primary Healthcare Centre (PHC) per ward in line with the Primary Health Care under One Roof (PHCUOR) policy. All the 177 wards in Ekiti State have, at least, one functional PHC.” the governor
