Ikole-Ekiti (Ekiti), Jan. 28, 2019 (NNN) The Elekole of Ikole-Ekti, Oba Ajibade Fasiku, on Monday assured the management of Ikole Local Government Council  that he would continue to give the necessary support to all their activities.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NNN) reports that Fasiku  made the promise during a  visit of the Coordinating Director of the council, Mr Gabriel Fasanmi,  to the Elekole’s palace in Ikole-Ekiti.

Fasiku, however, decried  the dirty markets,  street drains  and major roads in the community, describing them  as an eyesore.

He charged the council boss to ensure that  adequate measures were taken  to ensure cleanliness in the entire community.

“I want to assure the management of the council that I am ready to support them to promote and revive the community.

“Also, I wish to say that Ikole Local Government is not doing enough in cleaning our environment.

“During the past administration of Gov. Fayose, we did not benefit from the  council administration.

“My chiefs ‎and I are the ones paying for the cleaning of the markets to prevent outbreak of cholera in the town.

“But I have confidence in the new council administration  that the condition of my town will improve by God’s grace,” he said.

Earlier, the Coordinating Director of the council had commended the traditional ruler for his advice  and constant visits  to the council.

Fasanmi assured the monarch that he would empower the environmental officers in the council with basic working tools  needed to make the town clean.

He urged  the traditional ruler to  admonish his ‎people to comply with the rules and regulations of the local government administration. (NNN)
