He said there are tangible evidences in the horizon which underscores the need to tow such legitimate parth as part of efforts aimed at strengthening the local governance for meaningful development in the rural level.

According to him “Any state that promoted the conduct of Local Government Election, is not only development friendly, but peaceful, visionary and people-oriented thereby distilling the essence of progress. These are part of attractions and set parameters for any investors including Foreign Direct Investment, because it shows the level of consciousness of it’s leaders to promote, protect and creates enabling environment, guarantee ease of doing business in it’s ecosystem alongside other safety nets that discourages divestment.

“Let me appreciate the Ekiti State for rising to this responsibility in en trenching rural governance to the people on which the plank of our democratic principles is engraved. While we are thanking him we are reminding other Governors to key in and for those of Plateau, Benue where the tenure of Democratically elected officers were truncated to revisit their action in the interest of peace, justice and fairness. We will continue to support them until justice is served.
