Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has said that the State’s College of Technical and Commercial Agriculture, Isan Ekiti will commence academic activities next year.
Speaking at the 26th Isan Ekiti Unity Day celebration, in Isan Ekiti on Saturday, the Governor reiterated his commitment to the development of agriculture, which is one of the four developmental agenda of his administration.
The College which was established in 2014 with focus of mid- level man power development in the agric sector, was neglected by the immediate past administration.
Dr Fayemi who was named the Asiwaju Oluomo of Isan kingdom and presented an award of excellence for his contribution to the infrastructure development of the town, said the agric sector, when fully developed, would provide job opportunities for the unemployed youth in addition to food suplus.
The Governor stressed the readiness of his government to fight unemployment stressing that Ekiti “youths are hardworking and can excel in any field if given the right opportunity.
While noting that he had not made up his mind to vie for the July governorship election as at the 2017 Isan Day celebration, Fayemi urged Ekiti people to replicate the support given to him to win the guber election during the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
Earlier in his speech, the Onisan of Isan Ekiti, Oba Ayodele Adejuwon had described Fayemi’s return as governor as the turning “around of our captivities”.
The monarch who prayed God to grant the Governor success in his second tenure, urged him to prioritize the development of the community.
