Immediate former governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi has commended the concerned army chiefs, the executive governor of the state and other stakeholders on the occasion of successful launch of Command Secondary School in Ekiti state on Sunday, 17th September.
Fayemi noted the official opening capped his administrative move dated back to 2019 to have Command Schools in Ekiti.
“This marks the culmination of a four-year journey to join the ranks of states with Army Command Secondary Schools,” said the ex-governor.
He extended gratitude to the successive Chiefs of Army Staff, from Lt. General Buratai to Attahiru and Yahaya, as well as the two CDSs, Generals Yomi Olonisakin and LEO Irabor, and their officers who collaborated with me and the Ekiti team to achieve this goal.
Moreso, Mr Fayemi appreciated his successor, Governor Biodun Oyebanji, and his governing team for continuing the work he initiated to make Command School in Ekiti a reality.
“To the dedicated team on the ground, led by Commandant Major Anifowoshe, I commend you for a job well done. The Isan Ekiti community, under the leadership of Kabiyesi Oba Gabriel Adejuwon, has been a warm and welcoming host, and I appreciate the community for their hospitality and generosity of spirit,” Fayemi added.
He noted that the school has quickly gained popularity and has been oversubscribed.
“We hope that the military authorities will soon consider establishing additional schools in the state to meet the enthusiastic demand from Ekiti and the surrounding states,” Fayemi concluded.
