Winner-Takes-All System Would Not Progress Nigeria – Gov. Fayemi • Inaugurates Idi-Ape, Basorun-Akobo-Odogbo Road (PHOTOS)
Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the governor of Ekiti state and chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, has advocated for a proportional representation system that would enable both losers and victors of elections to work together and build a government that serves the needs of the populace.
At the 7.2 km Idi-Ape – Bashorun – Akobo – Odogbo barracks road dualization project and flyover commissioning event at General Gas, Ibadan, he made this statement as the special guest of honor.
Dr. Kayode Fayemi stated in a keynote address that concerns should be directed toward social and economic development for the benefit of the general public and that the winner-take-all system would not progress the growth of the country.
The chairman NGF commended Governor Seyi Makinde for his purposeful leadership.
Governor Seyi Makinde noted in his speech that the project will boost economic activity along the axis and was a promise honored.
When repairing roads within council districts, Governor Makinde promised that attention would also be paid to the dreadful inner city roadways.
Professor Daud Sangodoyin, the state’s commissioner for public works and transportation, had earlier emphasized some of the road’s key characteristics and mentioned that the project was completed using an alternative project funding strategy.
The previous administration had given the road project a contract, but it had been cancelled for a number of reasons, including failure to finish on time, and had been rewarded by the current administration, which is led by Governor Seyi Makinde.
