As part of efforts at ensuring that activities of the Ekiti SDGs is
not so much hindered by the current lockdown, the office of the SDGs
has held its first Virtual Online Meeting to determine the level of
development of the various ongoing projects in the State and how it
can be accomplished within the period of time without breaking the
social distance order.
The Special Adviser to Governor Kayode Fayemi on Development
Partnership, Mrs. Margaret Fagboyo, who presided over the online
meeting, said she was impressed at the space of work and the stage of
the various SDGs projects in the State.
She enumerated some of the projects to include construction and
renovation of Health Centres, Primary Schools, procurement of
Ambulances and Medical Equipment among others, stressing that the
government is very keen to see that the projects are executed to
specification and are delivered in good time.
The Director of Administration and Supply, Dr. Yemi Adeyemo, while
giving the update on behalf of the SDGs Team that monitored the
projects across the state said, most of the projects are at the verge
of completion while necessary rectifications and restructuring are
being effected where necessary to ensure that all the projects are
delivered in accordance to the specification and also in due time.
He therefore advised the SDGs Team to work effectively from home as
much as possible in order to accomplish and deliver all the SDGs
projects across the State as and when due.
In his own remarks, the Director of Programs, Mr. Ogunlade, described
the teleconference as a welcome development, noting that it will spur
everybody to be proactive despite the lockdown.
