When it comes to excellent governance devoid of excess politicking, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state is a man I will give it to anyday, anytime. Governor Kayode Fayemi during his first time in office as Ekiti State governor, recorded a land mark achievement by creating jobs for Ekiti indigenes through government agencies.
He lost re-election, and those he employed lost their jobs, unfortunately, former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti who succeeded Governor Fayemi, did not replace those recruited during Governor Fayemi’s tenure that he sacked neither did he create the environment for more concrete and lasting job opportunities, despite being acknowledged as a grassrooted governor, expect to indulge in last minute creation of emergency jobs that would constitute cogs in the wheel of progress for Gov. Fayemi.
Governor Kayode Fayemi returned to the saddle of governance at Ade-Ekiti and like a leopard who never change spots, he resolved the lingering issue involving the Ekiti state university,where Medicine and Surgery undergraduates spent ten years studying a course that should have taken them six years to complete.The same Governor Kayode Fayemi is already paying backlog of salaries he inherited from his predecessor.
Former Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State led government did not give the issue the high level of priority it deserved,and the medical students spent longer than necessary in school, but the emergence of Governor Kayode Fayemi led to resolution of the issue and Ekiti State proudly joined the other states in South-West Nigeria specifically, and Nigeria generally that boasts of functional medical schools.This is the nature that sets out Dr Kayode Fayemi as a leader who achieves without drama and needless noisemaking.
