This afternoon, I met with the three indigenes of Ekiti State who were recently honoured with the Presidential Award for @officialnyscng Corps members. I am glad that in their various Places of Primary Assignment (PPA) they demonstrated #leadership, #compassion, and #diligence...
- values that define us as Ekiti people.

These young people went beyond the call of duty and made us proud. Kolawole Toba Gabriel focused on maternal and child #mortality, and helped to address questions of #poverty that contribute to high mortality rates in Adamawa State.
In Bauchi State, Ayodele Olubusayo Abidemi did a lot to improve the learning environment in the community where she served by renovating three blocks of classrooms, and assisting #school children.
Seriki Adetutu Ifeoluwa dug a well to improve access to #water during her service year, and provided #relief materials to #vulnerable school children in Oyo State.
These exceptional qualities of #service speak to the #values restoration agenda that we have always promoted in Ekiti State. For us, it is important to restore the values that Ekiti people are known for.
Ekitis are passionate, service-oriented, courageous, industrious, hard-working, knowledgeable, patriotic, and honest. We are honourable people!
These young awardees are great testaments to our #heritage as the Land of Honour - Ile Iyi, Ile Eye. I hope other young people are inspired.

On behalf of the good people of Ekiti State, I thank them for making us proud and wish them success in their future endeavours.

This is to wish @yinkaoyebode1, my Chief Press Secretary a very happy 50th birthday.

Yinka is one of the longest serving members of my team, and a very dependable ally and aburo. Before he joined us, he had earned a solid reputation and excellent track record as a journalist. ImageImage
We have come a long way since I invited Yinka to join our team, and he has consistently demonstrated the finest values of professionalism, loyalty, diligence, and excellence.
The office of the CPS is a very important and sensitive one, and Yinka has done a great job. His calmness in managing difficult situations is phenomenal, and his counsel is reliable.

Today, I met with the Chief of Defence Space Administration (DSA), Rear Admiral Williams Kayoda on the proposed establishment of the Nigeria Space Communications Satellite Centre in Ekiti State. This project complements the Ekiti Knowledge Zone initiative (EKZ).
Our administration conceived the #EKZ to take advantage of technology for #scientific research, industrialisation, and #innovation.
We envisioned the EKZ to position Ekiti for such a time as this, and we are pleased that the DSA has found in Ekiti a worthy partner for such an important project.

Our administration has recorded significant progress in making Ekiti the preferred destination to live, work, and play. I am pleased to announce that our state has been selected as the host of the 2021 edition of the National Arts Festival (#NAFEST) to be held later in the year.
Ekiti is beautiful. Our knowledgeable people are #hospitable, we have the most breathtaking scenery, our pounded yam is legendary, and we celebrate our #cultural heritage.
Our #investments in infrastructure and security has attracted an increasing number of players in the #hospitality sector, as well as individuals and organisations who regularly come for holidays, retreats, and conferences.

Ekiti Kete, I address you today in respect of the current security situation in our State, south-west zone and Nigeria as a whole which has necessitated the imposition of curfew.
The events of the last one week has been deeply troubling and of a great concern to me and many patriotic citizens of our dear State.

You would recall that on October 9, 2020, some concerned youths organised what was clearly a peaceful protest in Ado-Ekiti, ..
...just like their counterparts in other parts of Nigeria. The protest was commendably peaceful and their demand was justified.

I would like to take some time out to pay tribute to a friend and comrade who I just learnt passed away on Monday, April 6, 2020 – Phillip Ilenbarenemen @IlenPhilip…
The loss of Phillip at this time came as a shock, and deeply saddened me in a week we had begun to have some joy with the traction we have recorded in the battle against #COVID19 in Ekiti state.
This week we had the second positive case successfully treated and discharged from our isolation centre, and our palliative measures to bring relief to our people in this difficult time commenced in earnest.

Ekiti-kete, it is exactly one year today, that I took the oath of office as the sixth (6th) democratically elected governor of our dear State, Ekiti. /1
You laid the path for a new beginning in Ekiti State on July 14, 2018 when you freely elected me as your Governor but your journey of faith with me started, for the second term, on Thursday, October 16, 2018. Today marks the first anniversary of the journey. /2
First anniversary of the day we all heaved a sigh of relief. The day that marked the beginning of values, dignity and honour restoration. The day that further consolidated our democracy and opened a new chapter in the practice of good governance in Ekiti State. /3
