Ekiti embarks on construction of shops to boost economic activities
Speaking during the foundation laying ceremony of the buildings, the State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose reiterated the commitment of his administration to boosting economic activities in the State.
The Governor who spoke through the State Commissioner for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Prince Taelolu Otitoju said that the
new shops would help reduce the problem of insufficient space for traders to sell their wares.
He assured owners of kiosks and other temporary sheds whose stalls were removed from the market of priority consideration in the allocation of the new shops when completed, emphasizing that allocation of the shops would be transparent.
Fayose said that the project would be carried out through direct labour by the State Urban Renewal Agency, adding that the outfit is expected to deliver to specification within two months.
