Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has bragged that his administration is not afraid of probe because all transactions in the state are being done in the open hence the.
The governor who was represented by the Commissioner for Budget, Femi Ajayi, during a three-day Public Procurement Workshop with the theme, ‘Promoting transparency and accountability in public education expenditure through open contracting,’ organised by the Public-Private Development Centre in partnership with MacArthur Foundation said, “We know that for government to have a policy that will be workable and transform the economic landscape based on peculiarities, everybody must be involved.
“Before 2019, 2020, and 2021 budgets were prepared, we held town hall meetings across the three senatorial districts where every section of the public was represented. That was where people made their demands based on peculiarities.
“That was where they told us if it were roads, schools, hospitals, town halls, and others that they needed. Ekiti doesn’t joke with the budget process. No government jokes with budgeting and transform the economy. That was why Governor Fayemi signed to Open Government Partnership.
“We are not afraid of probe and financial scrutiny, because we have nothing to hide. That is why the Fayemi administration signed the Freedom of Information Law in 2011. The law is there.”
