Monarchs in Ekiti State have urged the lawmakers elected during the March 9 house of assembly election in the state to serve as a veritable tool for societal development through effective and quality representation.

The monarchs advised the lawmakers to make laws that would be in the overall interest of the populace, regardless of political affiliations and religious beliefs.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, had won 25 of the 26 assembly seats declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, with election in Ekiti East constituency declared inconclusive.
Speaking during a thank you visit initiated by Mr Akeem Jamiu across Irepodun/Ifelodun constituency 2, the Oniropora of Iropora Ekiti, Oba Joel Ajayi Olonibua, said all the lawmakers elected should refrain from discrimination and treat all citizens as equal that deserve democracy dividends.
He regretted that his town has not enjoyed the expected political patronage in terms of appointments since 1999, urging the lawmaker-elect to take up the matter with Governor Kayode Fayemi.
“This is an issue I want Hon Jamiu to address for us when inaugurated as our representative at the assembly,” he said.
