Ekiti State Governor, Doctor Kayode Fayemi has, laid the foundation of five legacy projects as activities marking his second year anniversary continue in different parts of the state.
It was a rain of Project as the Governor and members of his cabinet marked the second year in office
The five projects included a new Government House; Governor's office; an Ultramodern State Pavilion, Samsung Engineering Academy and a Civic Centre. The new projects are to be completed by the end of 2013.
Four of the projects will be funded through the #20 billion bond obtained by the State from the bond market earlier in the year.
Speaking at the flag off of construction work in Ado Ekiti, the Governor said his administration is committed to transforming the state so that it can become a choice destination for all and sundry.
While justifying the decision for a new Governor's office, the Governor asserted that the present Governor's office was originally designed by the Adebayo-led administration to be a hotel but was converted by the successive administration.
He stated that many of the projects whose foundations were laid are envisioned to be "timeless" and serve all successive administration and people.
On the 7000 sq metre wide Civic centre and museum, Fayemi said the choice of the old Ado Ekiti prison as the location of the museum and civic centre is not unconnected to the fact that the government wants to preserve the remain of the old prison which was demolished.
The civic centre will house among other things a museum, amphitheatre, event centre, a modern library and a civic centre.
