Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti has described his deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, as a loyal and reliable ally who sees public office as an avenue to serve humanity and contribute to nation building.

Fayemi made the remarks in a congratulatory message on Egbeyemi’s 78th birthday signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, on Sunday in Ado-Ekiti.

Fayemi also described Egbeyemi as a great and invaluable asset to his administration.

He said Egbeyemi had been very supportive in the actualisation of the people-oriented development agenda of his administration.

According to him, he has consistently worked hard in ensuring that the administration delivers on the promises made to the people of Ekiti.

While justifying Egbeyemi as a great asset to his administration, the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum ( NGF) stated that Egbeyemi had used his experience as a lawyer, seasoned administrator and community leader to deepen governance in the state.

Fayemi prayed to God to give Egbeyemi more years in good health so that he would continue to make meaningful contributions to the development of the state and the country.

“On behalf of my wife, Bisi, the government and good people of Ekiti, I congratulate Otunba Egbeyemi and wish him a happy birthday today.

“I prayed that God continues to bless him with good health and wisdom to make remarkable contributions to the development of our dear State and country,” Fayemi added. (NAN)
