Ekiti state to consider alternative power supply option

Ekiti state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi says his administration would consider alternative power supply option to cushion the one being supplied to the state from national grid.

Governor Fayemi who stated this in Ado, the state capital, said the alternative option became imperative because the current supply was grossly inadequate and crippling economic activities in the state.

He also added that he had earmarked some funds for the Ministry of Environment to undertake erosion and flood control projects in some towns.

The governor said that this was was as result of the recent flooding that ravaged Ado Ekiti and other towns, of which many civil servants were major victims.
