Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti has said that he was not bothered by the ongoing strike by petrol dealers in the state as he vowed to demolish the stations in residential areas.
The governor spoke during his monthly public enlightenment programme, “Meet Your Governor in Ado Ekiti.
He said he would not rescind his decision to stop further erection of filling stations in residential areas, even if the petrol dealers strike for one year.
He said full demolition of such fuel stations, including those erected near schools would commence on Tuesday.
Besides, he placed a ban on commercial activities in all fuel stations that were currently on strike.
He said there was no way he could allow shops attached to fuel stations to be opened to business when the real filling station was closed to motorists.
Fayose expressed gratitude to the Federal Government for renaming the Federal University, Oye Ekiti after the late Gen. Adeyinka Adebayo, adding “I begged for it.’’
