Communities in Irepodun-Ifelodun Seeks Govt. Support
Four Communities in Irepodun/ Ifelodun Local Government Area of Ekiti state have appealed to government to reconstruct roads linking the towns and establish police posts in the areas.
Traditional rulers of some of the towns including Esure, Awo, Eyio and Ilomu Ekiti, made the request during their visit to the office of the Ekiti State Deputy governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi.
Spokesperson of the Monarchs, the Elesure of Esure Ekiti, Oba Adebanji Ajibola said that good roads would enhance transportation of their farm produce and services among the people in the area.
Oba Ajibola who explained that towns like Eyio, Awo, Ilomu and Esure Ekiti have no single police post, noted that the traditional rulers had been using their personal efforts with the cooperation of people to pay for the services of local hunters for protection of the areas from any invasion.
He also requested for even deployment of Amotekun personnel to strengthen the security network in the state.
In his response, the Ekiti State Deputy governor, Otunba Egbeyemi appreciated the traditional rulers for promoting peace in their domains.
Otunba Egbeyemi noted that security of lives and property remained one of the priorities of Governor Kayode Fayemi’s administration and efforts were being made to sustain the existing peace across the state.
The Deputy Governor stressed that despite the fact that the present administration met huge debt on ground, no stone would be left unturned to meet the yearnings of the people in terms of socio economic development, rapid growth and strong security network.
