Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the Governor of Ekiti State, has vowed that nobody would come from outside to take any land in Ekiti State.
“Nobody is coming to take our land in Ekiti. The Governor of Ekiti State has power over the land of Ekiti and it is the person that the governor gives land in Ekiti that can use the land of Ekiti,” the governor stated when he paid a condolence visit to the Orin Ekiti community over the murder of a hunter, Emmanuel Ilori.
Just like the Ex-Governor Ayodele Fayose, Fayemi noted that the state would work with traditional hunters and security agencies to provide enough security for the people of Ekiti to sleep with their two eyes closed.
“If there are negative comments being peddled around that some people are coming to take over Ekiti land, they are mere hearsay. It cannot happen in Ekiti, except I am no longer the Governor of Ekiti State and there is nobody that can be governor in Ekiti that will cede Ekiti land to outsiders because our land is not even enough for us.
“Adequate security of our people is what concerns me most in Ekiti and Nigeria and I want our people to ignore the lies and falsehood some individuals are spreading around. There is nobody that will be governor in Ekiti that will allow outsiders to take over our communities from the people here or say that people coming from elsewhere should come and take over Ekiti land.”
