Governor Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State has reaffirmed his administration’s dedication to advancing infrastructure within the state.

The Governor announced plans to resuscitate moribund bureau of public works, aiming to bolster infrastructure development and guarantee the maintenance of internal and township roads for seamless functionality across the state.

Governor Oyevanji speaking during inspection tour of the facilities and equipments of the agency’s yard in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, said the agency will henceforth attend effectively to mending and reconstruction of township and internal roads across the state.

The Governor who was accompanied on the tour by the Commissioner for Works, Mr Sola Adebayo, said the Public Works bureau would ensure frequent maintenance of roads within the state as government would no longer contract out road maintenance and other menial road constructions works.

Governor Oyebanji emphasized his government’s commitment to supporting and upgrading the agency to ensure it can compete favorably with other construction companies.

The Governor noted the crucial role of infrastructure in driving economic growth and improving the well-being of citizens. He affirmed his administration’s dedication to improving transportation, safety, and overall living standards for the state’s residents.

Governor Oyebanji warned workers in the agency not to allow any part of their equipment to be pilfered under any guise, stressing that serious sanctions await anyone caught pilfering parts of the equipment, even as promised that Government would buy more equipment to enhance the effectiveness of the agency.

“I have been here once to assess their capacity and their readiness to participate in the development of Ekiti State and discovered they have a lot of equipment that have been moribund for years.

“So, what we have done is to attempt to reactivate some of the equipment so that our decision and desire to ensure township roads in the state are pothole- free will now be met.” Governor Oyebanji added.
