The Association of Online Media Practitioners of Nigeria (OMPAN) Ekiti State Chapter has enjoined Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state to fight poverty.
The association in a statement issued on Friday and jointly signed by the State Chairman, Comrade Ayodele Abere and the State Secretary, Comrade Emmanuel Adeniran in Ado Ekiti, urged Fayemi to focus on fighting poverty in the State.
OMPAN noted with great concern the level of poverty being experienced by the people, and advised Fayemi to declare war against poverty in the State before it becomes uncontrollable, as he has promised to restore Ekiti values.
The statement further reads: “Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the new Governor of Ekiti State must ensure that the locally made contents are well patronised. Doing so would make money to be in circulation which is very key to fight poverty in our dear State as such will enable every sector of the State’s economy to be meaningfully engaged and not rendered redundant or ineffective.
Importation of contents from other States should be totally discouraged by the present administration for Ekiti people to be happy and be at peace with the new government which at the long run, will help the administration of Kayode Fayemi to maintain his political touch and relevance with the suffering people of the State from time to time”.
Aside this, the Ekiti OMPAN also advised that “street lights should be provided in Ado metropolis and the towns across the state to expose criminals that might want to perpetrate evil at night when it is dark.
