Going further, Fayemi said the task of rebuilding Ekiti should be paramount to the appointees and not personal aggrandizement.
“You must try and represent your people well. In coming up with the list, we ensured that each council got one commissioner each. Make sure you make yourselves accessible. This is a government of restoration and you must key into our four cardinal objectives of this government in your respective ministries.
“Penalties are there if you don’t live up to expectations. This is an opportunity to write your names in gold for being part of the restoration team. Don’t share the exaggerative view that government is an avenue to amass wealth," he said.
Premium Times reports that the new commissioners are Adio Afolayan (local government and chieftaincy affairs), Moji Yaya-Kolade (health and human services), Moji Fafure (women affairs), Emmanuel Foluso Daramola (education, science and technology), Folorunso Olabode (agriculture and rural development), Bamidele Faparusi (infrastructure and public utilities) and Gbenga Agbeyo (environment).
