Fayose awards N1.2b contract to local carpenters

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has awarded a N1.2 billion contract to make chairs and tables in public schools to the Carpenters and Furniture Makers Association.

Fayose said the gesture was to empower local artisans and grow the local economy.

Speaking at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the government and the association yesterday, Fayose said the action was part of his administration’s stomach infrastructure agenda.

Represented by his Chief of Staff, Dipo Anisulowo, Fayose said the project, which is a Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) project, covering six local government areas.

He said: “This is an empowerment project. We are awarding the furniture aspect of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) project to these local furniture makers.

“The project covers six local governments. The project would cost the government about N1.2 billion. This gesture by the governor is a first. He did this to make good his promise to empower local contractors and artisans.”
