The Ekiti state Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said that measures have been put in place to ensure a free flow of traffic on Tuesday during the inauguration of the state’s governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, in Ado-Ekiti.
The FRSC Commander in Ekiti, Mr Ismaila Kugu, said the corps in collaboration with other agencies are bringing officers and marshals from outside commands for effective services. Kugu said that alternative routes would be provided for motorists and commercial motorcycle operators in the state capital, to ensure a hitch-free inauguration.
Part of the programme lined up for the ceremony is a lecture entitled, “Reclaiming Our Land, Restoring Our Values, Ekiti of my Dream,” to be delivered by a renowned poet, Prof. Niyi Osundare.
The chairman of the inauguration’s Media and Publicity sub-committee, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, had said that all state governors had also been invited to the inauguration. Governor Ayo Fayose, the outgoing governor, will not be attending the inauguration as he has an appointment with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, but he has handed over the instrument of office to the Head of Service, Dr. Gbenga Faseluka.
Fayemi, former Minister of Solid Minerals Development, contested the July 14 governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and defeated other contestants to emerge the governor-elect. He was the governor of the state between 2010 and 2014.
