Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, has described his Ekiti State counterpart, Ayodele Fayose, as the symbol of their party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He said this in Ado-Ekiti while laying the foundation of a new hall in the palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe Aladesanmi III.
According to a statement on Thursday by the Chief Press Secretary to Ekiti State Governor, Idowu Adelusi, Mr. Dankwambo expressed satisfaction with the developmental projects and programmes executed by the Fayose administration.
“Ekiti and Gombe have things in common. The two states were among the six states created about 20 years ago. What I saw during the Udiroko Festival really impressed me and by next edition, God willing, I will come with more people from Gombe to celebrate with you people. I will also adequately support this hall project and hope to be here when it is inaugurated,” he said.
In his remarks, Governor Fayose said sons and daughters of Ado-Ekiti as well as friends of the town would help in building the hall, stressing that the project is not state project and will not be funded by the state.
The governor said the sons and daughters of Ado Ekiti and as well friends of Ewi have resolved to fund the project.
