Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, has taken   delivery of 30  Toyota Tacoma Pick up Vans supplied by motor dealers based in the state to strengthen operations of Western Nigeria Security Network codenamed “Amotekun Corps”.

Oyebanji, represented by the  Deputy Governor, Mrs Monisade Afuye, while taking the delivery in Ado Ekiti, promised to put security measures in full gear to tackle criminal elements terrorising the state.

He said the fact that the vehicles were supplied by members of Association of Motor Dealers of Nigeria, Ekiti chapter, further attested to how committed his administration was to comply with the Ekiti State Local Contents Law enacted to strategically shore up patronage for local contractors.

Oyebanji promised that his government will continue to support local contractors and businessmen to thrive, saying: “this is not the first or second time that motor dealers in Ekiti have been patronised. Jobs that can be properly handled by local contractors won’t be contracted out to outsiders”.

The Chairman of Association of Motor Dealers of Nigeria, Ekiti State chapter, Alhaji Ibrahim Adeniyi commended the governor for patronising the local motor dealers.

Adeniyi described Oyebanji as a promise keeper for complying with Local Content Bill he assented to upon assumption of office to ensure increased patronage for local businessmen.

He promised to partner the government to make the relationship symbiotic by ensuring that every contract awarded to members is done in strict compliance with specification to sustain the spirit being demonstrated by the governor.

The businessmen appealed to Governor Oyebanji to donate a parcel of land to AMDON, for the construction of modern Automat to boost motor dealing business in Ekiti.

“This is the first Governor that will be attending to AMDON needs and patronising us. Governor Oyebanji has given us the deserved  recognition. We are assuring him, all the vehicles we are going to supply will be of good qualities”, he said.
