Monarch raps FG over varsity project, laments hunger



The Oloye of Oye-Ekiti, Oba Michael Ademolaju, has lamented the inability of the federal government to compensate the agrarian town for the farming land acquired for the Federal University of Oye project.
The monarch bared his mind while welcoming the Wife of the Governor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, to Oye-Ekiti for the ground-breaking and inspection of project site for the construction of modern neighbourhood market in the town.
He commended the Governor Kayode Fayemi-led administration for extending the dividends of democracy to the community unlike his predecessors, whom he claimed failed to spare a thought for the community.
Oba Ademolaju said: “I must say that hunger and poverty pervades this town now. Not because my people are lazy, because one of the things I encouraged my people to do is to embrace agriculture.”
He appealed to the state government to intervene in the matter by ensuring that the community was adequately compensated for their losses to turn around their fortunes.
“We have seen that Fayemi’s administration is undertaking reconstruction and renovation of existing infrastructure. In some instances, he is adding and building new ones. For example this market is brand new.”
