The Department for International Development (DFID) has hailed Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi for his strong political will towards institutional change.
The Southwest Regional Coordinator of DFID, Dr Sina Fagbenro-Byron, gave the commendation when he addressed reporters in Lagos.
Fagbenro-Byron, who noted that institutional change is paramount to reforming the society, added that Ekiti State is showing a trajectory in that direction.
He praised the state government’s efforts towards accountability, civil service reform, qualitative education and infrastructural intervention, among others.
The DFID Coordinator expressed satisfaction with the policies of the Fayemi administration on integrating the House of Assembly on the developmental projects.
Fagbenro-Byron said this has been outstanding while the security situation in the state is also commendable.
He, however, advised the government to focus more on indigenes of the state in the Diaspora for an effective partnership.
According to him, there is need for the private sector to key into the vision of the state government.
