Fayemi Urges Successful Ekiti Entrepreneurs to Invest at Home
The Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has urged successful Ekiti entrepreneurs to join forces with his administration in transforming the socio economic lives of the people by investing the state.
Fayemi stated yesterday during the commissioning of a new ultra-modern Victoria Manhattan hostel that was built by an indigene of Oye Ekiti, Mr. Goke Egunjobi, for students of Federal University, Oye Ekiti.
He commended Egunjobi for situating the edifice in Ekiti and said that it would complement government’s effort in tackling infrastructural challenges in the area.
The governor said that the building, which is equipped with state of the art facilities, would contribute in no small measure to providing conducive accommodation for students of the university.
Fayemi said: “I am glad that I am here, particularly that our brother did not choose to build this in Lagos where he resides. He would have probably made more money, if this is sited along Akoka, UNILAG student area, he would have made more money but he chose to come here to also establish his own presence back home.
“If all of us who are successful outside Ekiti, put back into the community, because government cannot do it alone, we would have totally transformed our state even beyond the level it is now.
“That is what this sort of institution does for the development of the community. That is why every Ekiti community wants an establishment of government because they know the multiplier effect of such establishment.
