Ekiti State government has directed that the new Government House, Oke Ayaba, in Ado Ekiti be named after the former Governor of the Old Western Region, the late Gen. Adeyinka Adebayo (retd.)
Fayose stated this at a meeting with beneficiaries of the state’s N5,000 social welfare scheme at the Government House in Ado Ekiti on Monday.
Urging the people to troop out to attend the state burial of Adebayo on Friday, Fayose said, “I have also directed that the new Government House and the General Hospital in Iyin Ekiti be named after him. This is not politics but governance.”
Fayose also gave a strong warning to men beating their wives, saying he would ensure their prosecution and imprisonment if there was incriminating evidence against them.
“We are against violence against women in Ekiti. If you do it and I have evidence against you, you will go to prison.
“There are several ways of dealing with a woman. There is zero tolerance to violence against woman in Ekiti,” he stressed.
