The Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has sought the intervention of the senate in the refund of 21 billion naira spent on construction and rehabilitation of federal roads in the state.
Fayemi made the appeal while receiving in audience members of the senate committee on works who were on an inspection visit to federal roads and other projects in the state as part of their oversight functions.
The senate committee led by the chairman, Senator Kabiru Gaya, was received on behalf of the governor by his deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi.
According to a statement by the Special Assistant (Media) to the Deputy Governor, Odunayo Ogunmola, other members of the committee on the visit include Senator Biodun Olujimi, Senator Clifford Odia and Senator Mustapha Sani.
Fayemi added that he was not yet satisfied with the number of federal projects in the state, noting that he would not relent until projects like railways and airport become reality in the state.
