During his speech at the 2018 edition of the Annual Udiroko Festival in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, Gov. Ayodele Fayose said on Tuesday said that all the ongoing capital projects will be completed and inaugurated before vacating office on Oct. 16.

 The governor said he had made resolutions to complete all ongoing projects in consonance with his promise while being sworn-in for a second term in office not to abandon any project embarked upon.

This was in response to the criticism he's gotten from critic about his embarkation on employment of new hands into the state public service at the tail end of his tenure.

He listed the capital projects so far completed and ongoing to include the One-Kilometer overhead bridge in Ado Ekiti, the new state High Court complex, the new Governor’s office and the new Ministry of Finance complex.

He listed others to include the new Ultra-Modern Kings Market in Ado Ekiti and the Amphi Theatre, the Banquet Hall at the Ewi’s palace and the dualization of virtually all the 16 Local Goverment Headquarters among others.

After his arrival at the venue, Fayose said there was no known law in the country that says a sitting governor must stop performing the functions attached to his office once his party have election decided against it.

He told the gathering that the about 200- lock up shops at the new Kings market would be shared to willing traders before the end of the week.

He pledged that those traders initially displaced as a result of the fire incident that razed the old market would be given preferential treatment.

NAN reports that the governor appreciated the people of Ado Ekiti for standing by his party during the last governorship poll, regretting, however, that certain forces allegedly did not allow their votes to count.
