    I think if this can be achieved, it will complement the efforts of the state government in ensuring Ekiti Kete have motorable roads. It must be reiterated that the primary reason of creating a local government development centres is to bring governance closer to the grassroot and the elected leaders must leave up to this tasks. People oriented programmes renovating dilapidated primary schools and refurbishing our primary health centers, giving incentives to teachers and local youths who are graduate to give extra moral lessons to complement the good work of our hardworking secondary school teachers, local government workers should be giving time to time training for effective delivery of their legitimate duty and award of the best worker should be initiated to boast their morale. Local government boss can collaborate with NOA at the local level to orientate the local youths on the important of hardworking, sincerity, perseverance, patient and patriotism. I wish them all well.
