Fayose Awards N1.2bn Contract To Carpenters In Ekiti

Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has awarded a
N1.2bn contract to the Carpenters and Furniture Association of Ekiti State.
According to Punch, the association on Monday evening signed a Memorandum of
Understanding with the state government on the contract.
The Chief of Staff to Fayose, Chief Dipo Anisulowo, who
represented the governor at the occasion, said the contract was part of the
stomach infrastructure programme of Fayose.
Anisulowo said, “This is an empowerment project. We are
awarding the furniture aspect of the Millennium Development Goals project to
these local furniture makers. The project covers about six local government
areas in Ekiti State, so they will make the chairs and the tables for all the
schools in the six LGAs.

“The whole project would cost the government about N1.2bn.
This gesture by the governor is the first of its kind in Ekiti State. The
governor did this to make good his promise to empower local contractors and
artisans in the state.”
He appealed to the artisans to make good use of the
“I hope you would not disappoint the governor because he has
reposed a lot of confidence in you to have given you this project. I pray you
will reciprocate his kind gesture by doing a very good job,” he told the
Chairman of the association, Michael Adeyemi, expressed
gratitude to the state government on behalf of his members.
