Ekiti State Government has set up a five-man committee with a view to ensuring the commencement of the Ado-Ekiti Airport project in the next few weeks.
The naming of the committee, followed a meeting held by the State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, with stakeholders involved in the project at the governor’s office, Ado-Ekiti.
In a statement yesterday by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the committee would start with the marking out of the 2,000 hectares out of the 6,000 hectares of land earmarked for the project.
The committee is being headed by Mr. Kayode Osho, who is the Commissioner for Works.
Governor Fayose, said during the meeting that the state government might start with the construction of a standard air strip and that it could be improved upon in the future, stating that with the prevailing financial constraint currently being experienced, it would be fool hardy to embark on any grandiose project.
