Governor Fayemi: I’m ready for probe

Kayode Fayemi's administration in Ekiti state says he has paid off inherited debts to the tune of 31 billion naira since he took office.

Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi says his government is not afraid of being investigated with the launch of the Public Procurement Law reform so that all transactions are displayed on the website for thorough financial scrutiny.

He said all government-granted contacts are now displayed on the state’s website for the public to evaluate and scrutinize to embrace the open contracting culture and allow citizens to take ownership of the government.

He spoke at Ado Ekiti at a three-day public procurement workshop labeled “Promoting Transparency and Accountability in Public Expenditure on Education through Open Procurement” organized by the Public Private Development Center (PPDC) in association with the MacArthur Foundation.

Fayemi, who was represented by the Budget Commissioner, Hon. Femi Ajayi, said that Ekiti had focused on an open contracting policy and compliance with fiscal regulation through a comprehensive budget that would advance its socio-economic policy for a development radical.
