Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has said that the current economic challenges occasioned by the outbreak of Coronavirus, would not affect payment of salaries, completion of legacy projects and other developmental initiatives in the State.
Fayemi gave the assurance at the Civil Centre complex in Ado Ekiti, during an inspection of some building and road projects in the State on Monday.
The Governor also inspected facilities at the state’s isolation centre in Ado- Ekiti where he interacted with some health workers on duty.
Fayemi said the enormous pressure on the finances of the State would not cause projects to be abandoned as stipulated in the State’s Transition law.
He explained that the current priority of his administration in the face of the current economic situation is to maintain recurrent expenditure, particularly in relation to salaries of workers, which he said remained a top priority.
