Fayemi, Gani Adams Meet in Ekiti
In continuation of efforts to ensure peace and stability in the country, the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Tuesday had an audience with the Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams.
The meeting was held behind closed doors at the Governor’s Office, Ado-Ekiti where issues affecting security and economic development of the Southwest and the country, in general, were discussed.
Governor Fayemi, at the meeting, urged political leaders at state and national levels as well as leaders of socio-political groups to be measured in their discussion of national security matters.
He said while the Southwest Governors were very much concerned about the security and wellbeing of their people, they have a forum chaired by Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), who is mandated to speak on their behalf.
‘According to Governor Akeredolu, this is the reason you may not see other governors from the Southwest speaking on current security issues. It is not out of cowardice or compromise, it is simply because we have chosen a chairman who speaks for us.
The Governor also appreciated Aare Gani Adams for his concern for peace, security, and stability of the country, and assured him that peace will reign in the region and Nigeria in general.
Prior to his meeting with Adams, Governor Fayemi had earlier chaired a meeting of the State’s Security Council, attended by heads of security agencies in Ekiti.
