GROUP LAMENTS RELEGATION OF EKITI'S INTEREST IN O'ODUA FIRMS
An Ekiti State based group, Ekiti Advancement Project, has lamented what it described as the relegation of the state's interest in O'odua companies.
The chairman of the group, Mr. Lawrence Eegunjobi, who said this at a press conference in Ado-Ekiti on Friday, said that members of the board of O'odua needed to ensure fairness to all the states in the South West.
Eegunjobi noted that Ekiti State had suffered relegation in terms of service provision as well as key appointments since the business body was formed during the Old Western Region.
He said that the contributions of the state had not reflected in the appointments and wealth distribution as it had always been relegated to the background whenever it was time to appoint key positions.
The EAP also threatened to impose sanctions on any indigene of the state found to be working against the overall interest of the state on the board of the conglomerate. The group said that it was high time Ekiti State and its indigenes began to occupy key positions in the company for the state to feel the presence of the conglomerate.
The group promised to wage serious war against bad governance.
