Keystone Bank partners Ekiti State for Development
Guaudian, Tuesday, 13 March 2012
EKITI State Government and Keystone Bank would soon commence strategic partnership aimed at ensuring rapid development in key sectors of the state’s economy.
The sectors, which are in line with the eight point-agenda of the Fayemi-led administration, include education, health care, industrial development, tourism, women empowerment and agriculture.
Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi who received the management team of the bank led by its Managing Director, Mr. Oti Ikomi in Ado-Ekiti at the weekend, said his administration was passionate about making fundamental difference in the lives of Ekiti people and would leave no stone unturned in ensuring that his vision for the state was accomplished.
Fayemi said though many people believed that Ekiti was a poor state, the greatest asset the state has was its human capital resources, adding that he has tailored the eight point agenda to focus on developing the resources to bring great benefits to the state.
The governor highlighted the eight point agenda, which he described as a roadmap for turning the state to a choice destination for investors.
While disclosing the latest development on the conversion of the present governor’s office, originally designed to be a hotel, to a three-star hotel, the governor said that two investors have shown interest in managing the proposed hotel, which is hoped to address inadequate hotel facilities in the state.
