Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, has commended Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi for his efforts to transform and develop the state. He described him as an agent of change, who should be supported and encouraged to deliver more dividends of democracy to the state.

General Gowon said that he was highly impressed by the massive infrastructural development? that was ongoing in the state, particularly the various roads and? urban renewal projects as well as the huge investment in health and education sectors. He urged Ekiti people to? support? the Governor so that he can? take the state to enviable heights.

The former Head of State, who addressed reporters shortly after a prayer session for the Governor and the state at the Government House Chapel, yesterday, enjoined Ekitis to support Governor Fayemi?s developmental efforts with prayers and votes, if he intends to seek a second term in office.

He recalled that Dr. Fayemi was particularly prayed for at the ?Nigeria Prays? programme in April 2007, when he contested the gubernatorial election.

He stated that though it took three- and ? half years for the prayers to manifest ,God?s plan? to transform the state through him is gradually being fulfilled.

?I have read a lot about the developments? in the health and education sectors and I have seen quite a number of roads at various levels of construction going on in different parts of Ekiti. I have also seen quite a number of buildings that have come up since my last visit here. I am certain there has been a lot of development and progress in the state under Governor Fayemi?s administration.

I must congratulate the people of Ekiti for giving him the needed support? to achieve what he has achieved. And I urge them to give him more support so that he can do much more.

?I also expect that the support will be given should you desire to go for a second term, so that the state can witness more development?, Gowon said.
