The Director General of Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement, Hon. Bisi Kolawole, said in a statement issued on Wednesday that “the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar must take stiffer measures to return peace to Ekiti State as it appears that the State Police Command can no longer handle the situation

In a letter to Fayemi, signed by the Chairman of the NAGGMDP, Ekiti State chapter, Dr. J.B. Ogunseye, and Secretary, Dr. O.O. Ajogbeje, the doctors’ body noted that the ongoing renovation is the first in the history of secondary healthcare infrastructure in the state

Retired local government workers and primary school teachers received N251.3 million for the month of April, their counterparts who worked in the civil service and served as teachers in secondary schools got N252.6 million for the same month

Dr. Fayemi, who was apparently worried at the spate at which some people violate town planning laws while building their houses, stated that the demolition is aimed at protecting the lives and property of citizens as some illegal buildings have posed threats to the safety of lives and property of those who had normally built their structures in the proper place by diverting the waterways
